    i have a FE & BE database. Both databases are set to compact on close via the
    tools-options-general tab.

    This doesnt appear to work on split databases? any ideas on a way round this?

    The backend will only compact when the LAST frontend disconnects from
    it. If user A closes her database but users B, C and D have it open,
    it will detect that the database is in use and not attempt to compact.

    There is probably little benefit from compacting the frontend.
    Normally the frontend won't contain any tables in any case! It may
    bloat somewhat from queries and Microsoft-generated temp tables, but
    it can be simply replaced with a new copy of a "fresh" backend as
    needed.
