If you have access to the navigation pane & ribbon, you can still create delete queries in an ACCDE.
Try using the shift bypass if necessary when you open the file.

Alternatively, use an external database. Link all tables from the ACCDE and delete the data from there.

All of the methods suggested earlier should work for an ACCDE file
Have you actually tried what what suggested?

ACCDE files are designed to protect the code in forms/reports/modules.
Tables and queries can still be edited or created or deleted.

How exactly is it locked?

Have you tried opening using the shift bypass or using an external database as I suggested in post #3?

You may be able to write a new database to connect to that accde database, and view the tables that way. It depends how carefully it's been protected. Colin @isladogs may be your expert in this.

see if this can open your db and show the tables.

So, you downloaded a file that you "purchased" and never made a backup. Just started typing in data? Most companies will allow you do download a purchase multiple times, at least for a limited amount of time.

Once you download the file again, you might want to make a backup.

You also can't actually use this database in a multi-user enviornment with the tables embedded in the FE. Proper setup for an Access application is to use two separate files. A FE for the application objets and a BE for ONLY the data. The BE is placed in a shared folder on the server and the FE is distributed to each user so everyone has a personal copy of the FE.
