    Unanswered: Compact database not working in nt

    Hi I've a database that I'm building in access 2000 on a system with xp for use with nt.

    I've used the following code to compact the backend on the xp system, but nt throws up "no installable ISAM found"

    DBEngine.CompactDatabase "t:\aml\backend backup\amlbackend.mdb", "t:\aml\backend backup\amlbackend1.mdb" ', , , "pwd=mypass"

    if I remove the password it won't do it.

    any ideas?

    I don't know much about the problem, but searched in the Microsoft Knowledge Base. Depending on the error #, there are a few suggestions.
