Access Data Projects and SQL Server 2000

It’s clear that Microsoft envisions the future of Access as a general-purpose development tool for creating SQL Server-based applications. The inclusion of SQL Server 7.0 Data Engine (MSDE 1.0) with Access 2000 and the upgraded SQL Server 2000 Desktop Engine (MSDE 2000) supplied with Access 2002 and Access 2003's MSDE with Service Pack (SP) 3 provide the benefits of a robust client/server relational database management system (RDBMS) without per-user license fees.

MSDE is a distributable component that you can include with Access runtime applications. Runtime Access applications don’t require users to have a copy of Access 200x on their machines, but you must purchase a license for the Access 2003 Developer Extensions, which is part of the Visual Studio Tools for the Microsoft Office System add-on, to create and distribute runtime versions of your applications.
