i have a 25 MB mdb file.
after adding 2 forms and 2 query's to the mdb it is now 31 MB !!
i already compacted it, but still it's huge!
Re: my mdb file size is huge!
First, did you include any 'graphics' on your new forms ?
That gets imbedded in the MDB file and if it was a large graphic, just adds
to the size of your file. If you did do this, try removing the graphic and
load it on the fly instead of having it loaded on the property page of a
Second, if it's a data issue that compact should have solved...did you use
a VB compact or the compact from inside MS Access ?
The compact from VB doesn't always give the same compression/compact level
as the one from Access. The same is true for the JetComp.exe program that
can be downloaded from Microsoft, doesn't work as well as the one in Access.
Don't ask me why, but I've confirmed this NUMEROUS times over the years
working with Access backends, the only compact that really works well is
the one 'within' Access.
Those are two things to check into...outside of those, I'd have to say there
are extra tables or data there that you aren't aware of...maybe something
in your new form or query has caused a cartesian product in an insert statement
or other similar problem in a loop...either of which could cause more data
than expected to get loaded to a table.
