News, links, downloads, tips and tricks on Microsoft Access and related
I am not a frequent Access 2007 user yet, but using it from time to time. And always wondering – why do we get such a non-trivial menu (or ribbon) structure. Today I wanted to compact database. And I was not able to find such button. Same time I remembered that I had already looked for it, and had found, but no luck today. Google always helps in such cases, this time I found a tip from Tom Wickerath, Access MVP:
Click on the round Office button thingy that you should see in the upper left corner. Then click on Manage in the list. You should see Compact and Repair Database at the top of this listing.
Why it there??? Several versions it was in Database Utilities, and now it get hidden in other place. If it was important to have it in Manage menu – I would jut put it in 2 places, with respect to former Access users…
BTW, I also searched at Microsoft site and only advice I found “On the Tools menu, point to Database Utilities, and then click Compact and Repair Database/Project”
