To compact the FoodWorks database you are working in:
- On the Tools menu, click Compact & Repair Database.
- Click Yes.
- As you work with a FoodWorks database, the database file can become fragmented and use more disk space than is necessary. Periodically, you can use the Compact command to defragment and compact your database. The compacted database is usually smaller and often runs faster.
- You can only compact a database if there are no other users currently accessing it.
