Compact and Repair All Access Databases in a Directory and in the Directories Beneath It

This searches every directory that the user defined, and the directories beneath them. It then finds MDB files and "compacts and repairs" them. It does a great job for me by making 2 Gb project backup files compact down to 20 Mb. Of course, that's after compressing them with WINRAR for the best and solid compression.

    Any suggestions about the "Run time error" : -2147217843 (80040ed4) Not a valid password. If the databases have a common password, is there anyway I could insert it somewhere in a setup? Thanks Mark

    This does exactly as advertised. Compacted about 10 DB in a folder and its sub folders. Saved about 100mb. Thanks, saved me a lot of time.
