Here is a function written in Access (VB) that will execute a vacuum. This
should also show you how to execute other Postgres commands or functions you
have created in Postgres: All you need to do is change "vacuum" to anything
you want to call in Postgres.
Public Sub si_vacuum()
Dim wrk As Workspace
Dim usrname As String
Set wrk = DBEngine.Workspaces(0)
usrname = wrk.UserName
Set gWrkODBC = CreateWorkspace("ODBCWorkspace", "postgres", "",
Set gConODBC = gWrkODBC.OpenConnection("SI_ODBC", , False,
"ODBC;DSN=PostgreSQL;UID=" & usrname & ";PWD=;")
Set gWrkODBC = Nothing
Set gConODBC = Nothing
Set wrk = Nothing
