Number of data pages used by MS Access table

Number of data pages used by MS Access table

(OP)
Is there a simple way to determine the number of data pages that a Microsoft Access table is using?

I have Access 2007, but the tables that I want to examine are in 2003 databases (I think).

A programming solution is desired, but a manual solution is acceptable. I am not interested in commercial products.

RE: Number of data pages used by MS Access table

Can you provide some context to your question?  What type of "pages" are you referring to?

Duane, I'm asking about data pages, as in the chunks (4 KB in size, starting with Jet 4.0) by which Access manages data in the .mdb file.

See, e.g., http://support.microsoft.com/kb/275561/en

RE: Number of data pages used by MS Access table

I guess I was wondering why the question. I have never found this to be important in any application I have created. Typically I use SQL Server as a back-end.

(OP)
Why the question?  Well, I have at least one .mdb file that is approaching the 2 GB limit, and would like to use the table sizes to help decide how to split the database.  (Yes, I would like to move the data to SQL Server, but there are other priorities.)
