    Hi:

    I have been compacting and and compress by mdb database
    for sometime now. I just noticed that my mdb database has
    been growing because of changes, etc. It is currently
    about 59MB in size.

    I created a new database, and imported everything over
    from the old database to the new one. I noticed that the
    overall size of the database is much smaller than the 59MB
    in size.

    I checked out the new database and everything works with
    nothing missing.

    Can someone explain what is happening?????
    I am interested.


    Thank You,

    Gary
