I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You can't!

However you can add a reference to the Microsoft Jet & Replication engine to your product to compact your database using a statement like this:

Dim zz As JRO.JetEngine

Set zz = New JRO.JetEngine
zz.CompactDatabase "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source = Source.mdb", "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source = Destination.mdb"

(If I'm not mistaking this engine ships with MDAC 2.1 or higher, SP3 for Visual Studio and with Access 2000)

Oh, and look in the MSDN library for more options (also for repairing). Look for the CompactDatabase method (for JRO that is)

Not fair! { ;) }

Now you're still using DAO. (DBEngine is part of the DAO model)

Anyway, if this works for you then I guess it's okay.

see ya...
