Default Corrupted mdb file

Can anyone help me, I have an mdb which is not showing any objects. The database seems to be corrupted. I used AccessFix demo and it seemed to fix it but I can't solve the problem as this is only a demo.

Have you tried opening the database in Access and then trying the Compact and Repair option off the TOOLS menu?

You could also try to create a new blank database and import the objects. I have had to do that before to solve "mysterious" problems.

What version of access are you using? I have had Access XP suddenly not show objects, but they do come back. I am not sure what causes it. In Access 2000 access seems to lose objects some times, but it is only an object at a time. When one tries to open an object it will open the next object instead. It is weird, to fix that you have to re-create the database, so mitch is headed the right direction. You will probably have to re-create the database so that your system tables get created properly.

Hi,

Why not try some Access database recovery tools to repair your Access database file? Below is a list of them:

Most of them provide a free demo so you can try first.
