    Compact on Open (97 SR-2)

    I would like to create a shortcut to my .mdb that will compact on opening.

    I think I know how to do this (by adding /compact to the end of the path) but I have 2 questions:

    1. Is this a good idea generally? I've had problems in the past when compacting (i.e. if another user has the db open).

    2. Do I need to include the /repair tag at the end of the path also. I am dimly aware from previous discussions that this is no longer recommended.

    TIA for any help

    I prefer not to do this, I've sometimes had problems with Compact, so I like to have the choice

    Instead I've got a Compact option on my right click menu (and Decompile as well)

    Attached is my registry entry for 97
