I have 2 databases (MDB&#039s) One has only tables, the other only forms, reports, modules, and queries with LINKS to the tables in the other database. <BR><BR>Each time I compile the forms database, it increases in size, and will not compact using the utilities. I converted from Access 97 to 2000. It started out at 17MB and now is over 90MB, even though the new code I have written is only a few KB.
