Davin, just out of interest, what happens if you create a new (blank) A2000
database, and import all the objects? How large is the result?
The A2000 (and A2002) compact/repair function is known to actually bloat the
database in some cases. Sometimes a decompile can help, but other times
importing into a new mdb is the only way to get rid of the spurious stuff.
