    Hi all,

    I have a front-end application and a back-end.

    The front-end app was around 8 MB. I added just one field to a table in
    the backend, and put that field on only one form on the front-end, and
    the application bloated to 40+MB.

    I tried compacting, and then backed the app up. It still stays at 40+MB.

    Any insight to that?

    Thanks for answers.

    YOu very likely have some sort of corruption - it may be causing the
    bogus JET error in your other message as well.

    See http://www.granite.ab.ca/access/corruptmdbs.htm for some possible
    causes and solutions.

    You may need to create a new, empty frontend and import the objects in
    this one - EXCEPT for the one form you changed. I'd suggest rebuilding
    that one from scratch, as it appears to be the corrupted object.

    Thanks, yes it was due to corruption..

    I found out that the backend was in Access 2000 (do not know why). I
    converted it into Acess 2003 format, and the corrupted memo field became
    availabe (filled with ###), I erased the data, and the problem was gone..

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
