Could you use the following tip ? Name tables with the USys prefix to prevent them from being visible. example if you have a table called "Employees" now rename that table to "USysEmployees". This makes your table into a system object which access does not display. To see this table later, choose view->options->show system objects.

Vivek... I replied to your other post on this... Carelfrik's method may work, but I still think you need to look at my other post, especially given that you want to finish the development as an executable.
