Increase Current Database To Max Size Limit

How to increase the size limit of a database.
Have any databases that have reached the size limit that was set when when the
Database was created? Need to make it bigger ? Here is how:

Run the COMPACT task with the -M argument. From the server console type:

LOAD COMPACT database_name -M

If the database is in a directory you must specify the directory name as well:

LOAD COMPACT directory\database_name -M

On larger databases this does take a while to perform. If you know you will
need to use this database while the compact -m is running use the -L argument
with it.

LOAD COMPACT database_name -M -L

Be careful, if you do not type a specific database name to compact, this will
affect all databases on the server. If you want to do this for all databases, I
suggest you run the COMPACT task by creating a Program document and schedule to
run overnight or over a weekend if you have alot of databases.
