    Compact & Repair

    1. What is the benefit of “Compact & Repair” Option?
    2. For a Split DB is it required for both Front End & Back End?
    3. If the ribbon is removed for security reason can the compact and repair be done through Code?

    1. a.if there is lots of deletion of records, it actually removes them and reduces the db size.
    b. sometimes a form/report/object can get corrupted, and repair fixes this.

    2. BE yes if the db gets too large. FE not needed as much, since theres no large tables to cause it to enlarge.
    and if corrupted, you can always just give the user another copy of FE.

    3. yes, the FE code can be used to compact the BE.
