This sub repairs and then compacts a database

sFile is the path of the database e.g. C:\DATA\MYMDB.MDB
sTempFile is the temporary file used in compation eg C:\DATA\MYMDB.TMP
When a database is compacted it must not be open

Private Sub Compact(ByVal sFile As String, ByVal sTempFile As String)
    On Error GoTo EHCompact
   
    RepairDatabase sFile
    CompactDatabase sFile, sTempFile
    Kill sFile
    Name sTempFile As sFile
ExitCompact:
    Exit Sub
   
EHCompact:
    MsgBox "Error occurred whilst trying to compact database " & sFile & vbCr & Error$, vbCritical, Me.Caption
    Resume ExitCompact
End Sub
