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

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

Hi,

Watch this:

For the screen resolution I suggest:

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?
