Can anyone elaborate on the process of "compacting" a MS Access 97
database? I have enherited an Access 97 database that was 216MB. When I
ran the compacting utility in Access the size of the MDB file was reduced
1)can anyone tell me why there is such a dramatic change in the size of
2)why is compacting necessary. I noticed thtat the 20MB file that had
been compacted started to grow in size steadily and with the addition of
new records - I am wondering why.
