The whole purpose of a Microsoft Access MDE file is to create a distributable package, and the advice is always to maintain a copy of the original database. Do you have this copy?

There you go then. Make any changes you need and create a new MDE.

You already have the mdb. You cannot convert an MDE to an mdb, which is why the original is kept.

I'm closing this topic as your request is not something that we will assist with.
