Corrupted mdb file

  1. I can’t open my access file. Every time I tried, I got notification that the file is corrupted. What can I do in this situation?

    Hi, A few ideas, one is that the file is corrupted, but let's assume it's ok, then you could try to open the file in another program, such as;
    http://www.alexnolan.net/software/mdb_viewer_plus.htm
    This would prove if the file is complete, or not.
    Is that .mdb file the only one that won't open, or are there others?
    Do you have a previous recent version of that .mdb file saved that could be loaded and updated?

    Is the file on a Shared Drive and accessible to more than one system?
