    I deleted a big table in access db, but the size of the db didn't
    reduce. How do I make the db to reflect it in size?

    The db needs to be "Compacted". Usually found in the Tools/Database
    Utilities menu.

    Hi.

    You'll need to compact the database after you've deleted the data in order
    to actually remove the space from the file that is no longer being used.
    Select the Tools -> Database Utilities -> Compact and Repair Database...
    menu.

    HTH.
