Compact and repair from command button Access 2010

I have a form which conatins a command button to compact and repair the database when the button is clicked.  It doesn't seem to work any longer with Access 2010.  Here is my code:

Private Sub Command111_Click()

    On Error GoTo Err_Command111_Click

    CommandBars("Menu Bar"). _
    Controls("Tools"). _
    Controls("Database utilities"). _
    Controls("Compact and repair database..."). _
    accDoDefaultAction

Exit_Command111_Click:
    Exit Sub

Err_Command111_Click:
    MsgBox Err.Description
    Resume Exit_Command111_Click

End Sub

I need to be able to compact and repair using 2003 and 2010 (and 2007) with a command button.  How can I fix this?

Your code is failing because it can no longer find the correct "menu" items (2010 and 2007 don't have the same menu structures).

You have a few options:

1) Use Sendkeys, which is something like this:

SendKeys "%(YC)", False

This may or may not work. Sendkeys is notoroious for sporadically working, so use this at your own risk.

2) Use the DAO method:

DAO.CompactDatabase "SourceDatabase", "Destination"

See this help topic:

The trouble with this is you cannot compact an in-use database, so you must do this with your database closed (if you're working with an unsplit database) or you must do this on the Backend ONLY (if your database is split).

Roger Carlson has a good example of this:
