Zip and Unzip MDB files using VB6
Posted on 2006-04-26
Like it says on the tin!
I have a vb6 app which creates an Access MDB file of about 250kb. This file will unltimately be emailed using a slow connection. When zipped, this file is only around 15kb in size. Is there a way I can use Windows compressed folders to zip the file programmaticaly.
I need to use a standard windows API and not a third party dll or control.
Later I have another application that will process this mdb file. It would be good if this app could unzip the file and process the mdb automatically with out user interaction.
