Access Compactor Template
Automatically Compact & Repair Access Databases
This Microsoft Access template will automatically compact and repair your databases on a regular schedule. You can use it as part of a nightly or weekly event, or you can run it manually whenever you want. The template will also create backup copies of your original databases to avoid corruption. In the videos that accompany the template, I will teach you how to integrate this database into your existing Access applications.
Full Developer Database
Once you have purchased the full developer database template, come back to this page and download the full template. This will give you access to the ZIP file containing the Template ACCDB file. The full version will run on 32-bit or 64-bit Access 2007 or higher. Be sure to watch the User Guide video (above). You can use the template standalone as it is or if you watch the Developer Guide video I will show you how to integrate it into your existing Microsoft Access database applications including a nightly event.
Please be sure to read the Before You Purchase section below before buying this template.
The Access Compactor template can be used in three ways:
The Compactor can be programmed to auto start when the database opens. Compactor can make backups of your files before compacting them. These will be date/time stamped, so make sure you clean them out occasionally. It will optionally create a log file every use. Then when it is finished compacting you can optionally relaunch your original database.
In the Developer Guide video I will show you all the VBA that you need in order to launch the Compactor as part of a nightly event loop in your Access database, complete with a countdown timer.
In the Addendum video I show you how to make the compactor only run one day per week which I forgot to do in the Developer Guide.
