I am using Access to create printable maps where I can change parameters (border colors) on the fly...

Currently, I am exporting the maps to JPEG then pulling them in. I would like to import MXD files so I can easily modify either the maps or frames on the fly.

With arcengine you can put a mapcontrol in an access form, and an mxd can be used to specificy layers and symbology I don't think you can put one in a report.
