Compact and Repair Access Database


Compact and Repair
You can use the "Compact and Repair" function in Access from ASP code. The following code is an example of how this can be done. Note that when you decide to "Compact and Repair" your Access database, some autonumbers can be changed. Access makes all autonumbers consecutive.
This code uses one database, but I'm sure the code can easily be changed so that the listbox displays, for example, all the databases in one folder.
