How can I automate compacting?

How can I automate compacting?

How can I automate compacting?

Hello everyone!

I am using MS Access Database 2016 / 365 version.
I am using this driver set = Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb, *.accdb)
My database has the .accdb tag.
The database is encrypted so I need to be able to open the database with the password and then compact it.

I want to be able to automate the process of compacting and repairing the database because I am tired of doing it manually.
I want to have an .EXE file that I can just click on and it will open Access -> compact -> close Access and be done.
I have found examples of doing this but none of them involve having a password to deal with.

Thank you in advance for the help! :)
