Ms Access app, front end(access 2010), Bloat Reduction. This app has been running for years, has been compacted and repaired on a regular basis during that time.
it is now 390mb. It contains some of everything (i.e. tables,queries,forms,reports,macros,modules). If I create a blank database and import these items I get a nice reduction to about 14mb. However, if I do the same but include in the options all of the import items, I get very little improvement. This seems to be where the bloat is but don't know how to reduce this or ignore it on the import, don't know what I lose.
