Compacting an Access 2010 database without opening Access or programmably
Posted on 2013-12-30
I was wondering if it is possible to compact an Access 2010 database without opening Access (like putting the steps into a batch file) or creating a second Access program to do it automatically.
What I would need to have happen is:
1. Automatically each night (around midnight when everyone is off it) a copy of the Access database is made and the older copy (from the night before) is deleted.
2. The original is compacted and repaired.
All with no human interaction (I don't want to have to be up at midnight to answer msg boxes).
Any help is appreciated.
