Periodically you should perform the following. When finished using the

point close the file. [you must do so as the database engine is indeed 
shutdown at this point] This will reduce the size of the file on disk 
and the memory used at run-time, and will increase performance on 
startup and shutdown. Depending on how actively you edit that table 
this period can be once a week or once every two weeks..can't say what

Thanks Drew!!

This worked a treat for me and I can see a marked improvement in my 
close-down times of the main DB and also closing Queries,

A real Gem!! (Is there any way of automating this do you know??)

Howdy Ian

Glad it helped.


As in a custom menu item for 'Close after Compact'
Every Friday compact the database?
