Safe way to save data (not structure)

    Hi all,

    Is there a reasonably safe, efficient way to save the data in an Access
    database? I know I can export individual tables, but is there a way to take
    all data in an Access database from multiple tables? Our data analysts are
    complaining about the size of the Access database due to the structure of the
    database.

    Thanks.

    If your database isn't split, then split it into two databases. The backend,
    will contain the tables, the frontend will contact linked tables and any
    queries, forms, reports, etc. on each users machine. This will cut down on
    the size of the database on the server as it will only contain data and not
    the bloat from the queries forms etc. Once the database is split and you
    have made a backup, and everyone is out of the database even the frontend,
    you can compact the database.

    Before you split the database make a copy.
    Access has a built-in splitter that you can run.

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!
