    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.

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!
