accde vs. accdb for back end DB

wipnav asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-10
Is there any difference in a .accde and .accdb file type being used for the back end of an access database in regards to the amount of file size growth between compact and repairs?

Additionally, is there any way to minimize the growth in file size and how does it occur on a back end file only storing tables? Is there something I could be doing in the front end that is causing it to grow unduly?

The only time I have exculsive access to compact and repair the database is at night which brings the file back down to the appropriate size, but by the end of the day the file is almost double to original size.
