Access database 2003 error: file cannot be repaired

Microsoft Office access 2003
February 23, 2015 at 08:24:21
Specs: Windows 7, 4Gb
One of my .mdb files time ago got damaged. But there was no problem in it, because I was able to copy some parts of it and a /decompile worked fine as well as Compact&repair feature. Sometimes popped up errors, but there was no need in a kind of global recovery, and now I am sorry about it…because at the last time no one tip helped. Pops up an error message: "The database .mdb can't be repaired or isn't a Microsoft Access database file" and that is all. So, maybe too late, but I am searching now some advices. How can I raise the file from the dead?

I am running Office 2003. If you let me know the mdb file name I can look in Access and, assuming I have it, can upload it for you if that would help.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

As you said you was able to copy some contents of file into the new blank database. Do you have this copy? Maybe it will be easier to restore this copy than corrupt file.
This error often a cause of unexpectedly Access quit while running.

Sometimes a file that does not open on one machine is opens on another. So, check the file on another PC.

Google more information about your problem if nothing works. There are a lot of similar discussions where you could find a good tips, e.c.
Or something like this.

Try Jet Compact Utility. This feature made by Microsoft and people said it is more successful in repairing corruption than the built-in feature of Access.

If all attempt to fix the file fails, then maybe really it is time to search a solution somewhere else, as Cruise said.
have a look here, for instance
perhaps it will be interesting.
