I ave code here that will compact and repair a database via vba code from another database.

Dim gsDBPath As String

    gsDBPath = "C:\Program Files\Crs\CartDatabases\"

    Kill gsDBPath + "SapAlternates2.mdb"
    DBEngine.CompactDatabase gsDBPath + "SapAlternates.mdb", gsDBPath + "SapAlternates2.mdb"
    Kill gsDBPath + "SapAlternates.mdb"
    Name gsDBPath + "SapAlternates2.mdb" As gsDBPath + "SapAlternates.mdb"

Does this code need to be revised to work in vba 2010... I have not used it yet ?

or better yet.

is the better code for doing this in office 2010 ?
