Compact and Repair database Microsoft access 2010 step by step guide

Asked By 50 points N/A Posted on -

I just upgraded my Microsoft Office from 2003 to Microsoft Office 2010. I like the changes in the new version. As this is a complete new package and solution, I am quite lost when it comes to using the Microsoft Access. The interface has changed and there are a lot of new tools now. I want to compact and Repair my database in Microsoft Access 2010 and I seem can’t do it. I am totally lost. Can you provide Microsoft access 2010 step by step guide on how to compact and repair database?
