For those of you who didn't want to install the VB 5 mdbCompact utility, here's an
Access 97 addin to do the job.
The Compactor uses Automation through a new instance of Access to compact the current
database. A command line parameter allows you to specify whether to reopen the
database or quit the Access instance.
The Compactor utility has been made into an Add-in because it can be called:
- in code, if it's in the Office directory, with
- as a referenced database with
All previous code has been replaced by a single entry point function, DoCompact,
which accepts one argument, True to reopen the database, or False
to close the Access instance.
