I have a Microsoft Access program that I run each quarter. It ran in June just fine and now it gets the above referenced message. I have confirmed that the Jet*.tmp file has reached the 2,092,996 size and that the actual database files are all less than 1 GB. I'm concerned that some "update" has come across that has changed the operating characteristics of Access but, aside from the cause, is there some technique that I can include in the program to cause the Jet*.tmp to reset? I am compacting the secondary MDB's during the process but have no idea how to get the tmp files to reset. Based on the number of EE questions that reference this problem I am guessing that this has a myriad of solutions but I have tried all that make sense. I have already increased all the PAGEFILE's.
