Compact Now and zipping a file isn't the same. When you Compress a pst-file
it removes the "white spaces" and allows you to run the pst-file. When you
zip a file you cannot directly access the file anymore.

This may be a dumb question, but I truly do not know what to do. I created a
database for myself, no one else uses it. I have selected the "Compact on
Close" option, but when I go to the location to open it again, I see the
original file with a large file size and then a file name, "db1.mdb" with the
smaller, compacted size. This just started happening in the last week,
otherwise it has always compacted correctly. Any help would be appreciated!

I'm looking for some decent remote control software for doing tech support
with a brain dead user -- actually a set of brain-dead users. I've listed
are running Vista/win seven, on the remote side Vista or XP. I'm familiar
with LogMeIn. I'm looking for something with similar functionality that
requires little if any installation on the remote site.
Free would be nice, of course.

My question is how to retrieve and update records in a remote Access
db sitting on a remote web host using a VB application. While I can do
this with SQL Server I could do with some general pointers on the
technique(s) used to do the same with Access. Do you have to get the
recordset via an asp page using the appropriate SQL string and if so
can updated records be returned back to the remote db via the same
means. Any comments to steer me in the right direction much

All of a sudden when we compact a database the db1.mdb file is created and
compacted into, but it does not delete the original mdb and rename the
db1.mdb to the original name. After compacting we have the original mdb and a
db1.mdb. The next day we have the original mdb, a db1.mdb and now a db2.mdb.
So on and so on. Can not figure out what changed. Anyone have any thoughts?
We do have delete permission on the drives as we can manually delete the
original mdb and rename the db1.mdb

How can I make the task of compact mdb into a macro in Access 97? Thanks.
If you're asking how you can compact the currently open database in Access
97, you can't using either a macro or VBA code.
If you're asking how you can compact another database (such as compacting
the back-end database from the front-end database), you can use the
CompactDatabase method of the DBEngine object (look up "CompactDatabase
Method" in the Help file)

for our staff in just such an event. They hold an image file of our PC's

c) Any other way around this problem
Any help would be appreciated.
I know there is a fix for this error somewhere in the "bowels" of MS KB
articles, I just can't seem to find it after numerous searches.
The fix has to do with deleting some registry keys then using RDC as admin
to reset the security keys or something to that effect. It only seems to pop
up whenever there is a "patch update" to which then I can no longer RDC.
If anyone could point me in the right direction.

Is there a way to compact an excel spreadsheet? I have a spreadsheet
that imports data and uses pivot tables. The file size seems to be
increasing, but the data isnt. I thought I recalled somewhere where
Microsoft had a tool or command to compact in the XP version. Any
help would be appreciated.
There's nothing that can compact the file, but you might be able to reduce the
size by resetting the last used cell of each sheet.
If you hit ctrl-end, does it take you way past what you think is the bottom
right most used cell? If yes, take a look at Debra Dalgleish's ...Compacted messages
XP during the Disk Cleanup operation indicates that certain old messages
could be compacted. Similarly Outlook Express suggests compacting messages
from time to time. But I have not seen XP reminding a user to look at his
compacted message folder. Is it because these compacted messages are
automatically deleted by XP after a certain period of non-use. Or is the
User expected to open the compacted messages - assuming it is accessible to
him - and delete the compacted messages when he thinks they are of no more
use to him?

Often plans change, and I need to be able to activate (or change the message

way I can do this remotely, especially from a Blackberry? We are running

Out of Office Assistant is a feature of Exchange Server, are you sure you
don't have exchange server? You can turn it on via Outlook Web Access, which
is also part of Exchange Server.

I have a client that had a OL2002 .pst file that was getting to be upwards of

the same size. I compacted his default .pst file and it only reduced it to
