    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.
