Default JetComp Wont Work .....HELP!!

Hi,

On trying to open an access 2000 database I get the error : "The microsoft jet database engine stopped the process becuase you and another user are attempting to change the same data at the same time".

I have tried using Jetcomp to fix this. But when I click to compact in Jetcomp I get an error : "Error Compacting Database". I am starting to get worried now as Jetcomp has always worked for me in the past!!!!

Anyone got any ideas.....please......

Thanks

Tim

Start with a Shutdown/restart of your computer. If you're on a network, you might disconnect your network just to be sure nobody else is trying to gain access to your database.

When the computer restarts, if any LDB files (Access Lock-file) exist related to your database, delete them.

When you open the database (and if you have not disabled the shift key) hold down one of the Shift keys on your keyboard until the database is fully opened (until you see the Database window). This will prevent any startup options from running.

Assuming your database will open... Don't know what Jetcomp is. But there is an option in Access to Compact and Repair under Tools | Database Utilities. Maybe Jetcomp runs that? But I would try running the Access Compact and Repair just to be sure.

If your database doesn't open, try creating a new database and importing each object from the one you can't open. This may not be possible if the old database is still locked.

If all of that doesn't work, try running Access's "Detect and Repair" from the Help menu then repeat the prior steps.

If all of that doesn't work, let us know. I can't think of anything else right now. But someone else may have more ideas.

Hi, Thanks for the reply. Ive tried everything possible. There is isn't an LDB file. If I try and import to a new database I get the same error message :

"The microsoft jet database engine stopped the process becuase you and another user are attempting to change the same data at the same time".

I also get this error If I try and "compact and repair". I am at a complete loss............ and I desperately need what is in this database.

Help.....

Many thanks

Tim

There are few suggestions there that might help
Also on Microsoft is a patch for the Jet Engine which helps eliminate the problem occuring again
