There used to be a way but it's probably not what you would expect. Essentially, there is no way to make a "standalone" application out of an Access database. The user will still need the Runtime installed on their machine.

To expand on the DBGuy's answer, when people (wrongly) talk about an Access executable they are referring to an ACCDE file.
This is a compiled version of the ACCDB file which prevents users being able to access the VBA code.

It IS possible to distribute your files as an EXE file for installation purposes.
To do so requires the use of professional installer packages such as Visual Installer or Inno
However during installation, the EXE file has to be expanded back to ACCDB/ACCDE files so they can be used.
This means that the Access program file (or runtime version) is still required to run your applications as DBGuy explained

In the past there was a package solution wizard which allowed you to bundle your application together with access runtime for distribution.
However that is no longer available
