Microsoft Access MDE database - Purging data

holemania asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-12
We have an old access database that is an MDE file.  The company that created that for us went out of business so we can't contact to get support.  The access database has grown to a size that is causing performance issue and we need to purge some data out.  What is the best way to handle this?  We can go and delete old records one at a time, but that's a lot of manual work.  Wondering if anyone has any input on how to best handle this or a method to purge old data out.
