in reply to Compacting a MS-Access database from perl

I'm stuck with Access 97 too.

You can use OLE to compact a database. Here's a fish:

use Win32::OLE; # check your registry for which version DBEngine to use my $dao = Win32::OLE->new('DAO.DBEngine.36', 'quit') or die "$!"; $dao->CompactDatabase('c:\\test.mdb', 'c:\\test2.mdb');

Check the Access helpfile for available options

    That took care of it. Thank all you monks a ton for your input. I still had trouble finding decent doc on how OLE works and what methods/objects are available. Problem solved... Perl > all yet again :)
