Reducing Size of Microsoft Access Database (Compact Database)

Compact MS Access Database using VBA (ADO Code)

If the DB Size is huge the compact DB utility [Compact & Repair Database (Tools-->Database utilities-->Compact and Repair Database) should reduce the DB Size.

Here is the code for doing the same using VB/VBA (ADO)

Public Sub CompactDB()
'Microsoft Jet and Replication objects
Dim objJE As New JRO.JetEngine, strSource As String, strTarget As String
Busy True
strSource = " "
strTarget = " "
objJE.CompactDatabase "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=" & strSource & ";", "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=" & strTarget & ";Jet OLEDB:Engine Type=4;"
Busy False
'Engine type:
'Access 97 = 4
'Access 2000 = 5
End Sub
