compacting the DataBase is recomended before that and a good thing to do from time to time with no connection to backup.
compacting may reduce the MDB size (in case records have been "deleted" since last compact) significantly.
in order to compact you have to close every connection whatsoever to the dB incluing bounded controls.
you use the DbEngine for that action.
