Last Modified: 2020-01-23
Hello Experts:
We have a departmental Access database in the .MDB format that's been hovering around 1.6-1.7gb in size. The database is exhibiting unusual behavior in that as of a few days ago, it began frequently crashing and creating an automatic backup. There are 1,200 objects in this database...would it help if we created a new shell and imported all of the objects into the new database?
