You can still access the data though, as long as you have a recent version
of MDAC, which AFAIK all version of Windows since about W2K include by
default.  There is no need to install Access on the server to use MDBs as a
data source.  So I'm as confused as Chris about Ken's question -- what do
you need Access exe's for if it's going to a website?
