    au contraire
    SQL Server & Oracle for that matter are "proper" SQL Databases, Jet Database
    (Read: MsAccess) is just another file..
    Jet tend to perform better with regular Compact (as your computer after a
    Defrag of it's harddrives).

    PS and I'm not entirely in accord with the blog, I would definitly Truncate
    (Compress) a log/dbf file that has bloated out of proportions, admittedly
    this should not happen, but I haven't designed all Database systems, nor
    loaded data into all of them <g>

    Thanks very much!
    I understand now.

    How about ADO, which use OLE DB.
    Is it as stable as JET for compressing data??

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!
