    I have an Access database that I compact regularly because of the size.
    However, the last two times I have compacted it, it deleted both my macros
    and my reports I had created (tables and queries were fine). Any ideas what
    would cause this and how I can avoid it? Thanks.

    Almost certainly, system table corruption. I hope you have a working
    backup... :-{(

    Try creating a new, empty database and using File... Get External
    Data... Import to import everything from your current working backup
    database. Test the new one to be sure it works correctly, trash the
    old one and rename the new if it does.

    Check out the suggestions at
    http://www.granite.ab.ca/access/corruptmdbs.htm to prevent and
    (hopefully) cure future corruption. Splitting the database into a
    frontend and backend sounds like a VERY good idea if you have not
    already done so!

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!
