    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.

    For more information on corruption including possible causes,
    determining the offending PC, retrieving your data, links, official MS
    KB articles and a list of vendors who state they can fix corruption
