    Hello All,

    Running Access '03
    DB ran successfully 7/24/06
    I'm the ONLY person that runs it.

    Today I received "Run-time error 3343" Unrecognized database format.

    Dead in the water.

    Would greatly appreciate thought on the reasons for the issues and a
    possible fix.

    Please assist and thank you.

    Did you upgrade this database from 2000 to 2003?
    see: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/q238401/

    Last resort:
    Create a new blank database. On the tables tab, select Import.
    Browse to the corrupted DB and import all tables, queries, forms, etc.

    Next time make periodic backups of the DB. lesson learned.

    Lesson learned indeed (thanks for the salt btw)
    Tried importing the tables and caught the same error.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
