What version of Access are you using?

Have you added any files that your Access Application is going to need (ie: ActiveX Controls, other "extra" controls, icons, other .dll's?)
If not, do you really need to "package"?

Sola,
Some examples of ActiveX controls are Calendar, Date/Time Picker, Tree, Common Dialog. They can enhance an application. Many of them have to be "added in" and/or are not included with Access regular installation. If you do use them in an application and try to run the application on a machine that does not have them registered, you will get an error. If you use a control such as this, Package and Deploy can copy what it needs from your development machine into the deployment package and then and register the control on the machine you are installing on.

It sounds like you did not use them or add anything else in your application. So if your user(s)have Access, you could probably skip using "package and deploy". Have them click on the .mdb, or put a shortcut to the .mdb on their desktop.
HTH,
Loralee
