Compressing of Access Database:

' Compact and repair database
' Function uses DAO 3.6 Library which works with Access 2000 database format
'
' Function writes result to sDestName file.
' Caller must ensure that sDestName doesn't exist before call to this function.
' If function finished successfully, caller may copy
' compacted database sDestName to source database sDBName
Public Function CompactAndRepairDatabase(ByVal sDBName As String, ByVal sDestName As String) as Boolean
    On Error GoTo errorHandler

    DBEngine.CompactDatabase sDBName, sDestName
    CompactAndRepairDatabase = True
   
    Exit Function

errorHandler:
   MsgBox Err.Description
    CompactAndRepairDatabase = False
End Function

This code sets form size to screen size:

Private Sub Form_Load()
    Me.Width = Screen.Width
    Me.Height = Screen.Height
    Me.Left = 0
    Me.Top = 0
End Sub

As a help in the future.  You should develop your forms in the lowest resolution yours users will use.

It's impossible. I work with Access using ADO too, but use DAO for compressing.

Hi,

Watch this:
http://www.phpbuilder.com/lists/php-db/2003092/0027.php

For the screen resolution I suggest:
http://www.mvps.org/vbnet/index.html?code/enums/enumdisplaychange.htm

With these two urls you should be able to solve both of your problems.

By the way why didn't you make to postings for two different problems?

Best regards, Raisor
