PERL 5.0 + DBI + Ms Access

Hi all,

the database I designed is used to generate a tree view applet (see my Thread in the SQL Forum :-D). In order to prevent my prog from looping (due to cross references) I've tried a lot of solutions, the one i choosed is to create a clone of the tables used to create my tree.

Before my routine, I create a clone, and after the creation of my tree (deletion of critical rows), I drop that clone.

My problem is that the size of the database (an Ms Access one) is increasing ... (from 600Ko up to 32Mo after 10 operations).

Lauching Ms Access and compacting the database is the worst solution, because it requires the intervention of the user.

I'd like to know if there is a solution under Perl&DBI to execute such an operation so that it is totally transparent for the final user.
