Hello Experts.

 In my program use Adotable to connect to msaccess file .
 I have a Function to compress file msAsscecc.

my question:

 How to close file msaacess before compress, I'd tried :

 Procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
 begin

 Adotable1.close;
 CompressData(filename);
......

but I get error .I know I can compress if data file not open.

 Please teach me how close access file to compress then reload it.

 Thanks.

Hi,

Add TADOConnection on the form. Write ADOConnection1.ConnectionString as it was in TADOTable1. Clear ADOTable1.ConnectionString and set its Connection property to ADOConnection1. Then write:

  ADOConnection1.Close;
  CompressData(filename);

Regards, Geo
