Well, you really con't convert it back completely as noted in this link:

http://www.granite.ab.ca/access/createmdbfrommde.htm

At least that's the same as I remember reading, however you might find the MDE Forms/Reports Extractor v2.1 he references useful. I've never tried it so I can't speak for how good it is.

It works good ATNO I use it one time before, but if ineedu4eva had only the MDE can it be consider as hacking? IMHO whoever made that MDE should have the MDB...

I considered that posibility labrego, but since it's a moot point I let it slide. You just simply can't take a compiled MDE and convert it back to an MDB. It's just not going to happen, hacking or no. And to your point, yes...if you have the MDE, then you darn well aughta have saved the MDB as well.

Added note from the Access 2000 VBA Handbook bySusann Novalis:

Quote:
You should always save the original version of the database that you use to create an mde file. If you need to change the forms, reports, or modules, you must make the changes to the original database and then create a new .mde file.

I am little stuck with a mde database. This is used at my work place.
I have the original mdb database fom which the mde database is created. But the mde database is contantly getting updated and so the data in the original mdb database is not same as the mde database.
Now whenever I open the the mde database it opens the user id box and then the main menu.
There are several options by which ALMOST all the tables can be maintained and updated.
But there is one table for which there is no maintenance panel. I want to mass delete all record in this table and then do a mass insert/import from an excel sheet in this table. But I can't do it in the original mdb. Please let me know how to do mass import from an excel to a table in mde database.
Thanks,
Rajib
