Default push to users

I developed a tool using Excel VBA for the front end. The tool however queries a Microsoft Access database to get results. I need assistance in pushing this tool to users that do not already have Microsoft Access. Is there something that I can do, or have users download, rather than requiring the installation of Microsoft Access?

Use MSDE rather than Access as the back end.

Or use text files for that matter if it is not that complicated.
