I apparently have a corrupt db and I've tried eveything I can think of to fix it with no avail. I've backed it up and then compact and repair it, relinked the tables...nothing works. I tried the jet utility that I found on utteraccess...that doesn't work. and another utility repair program that said it was successful but when I look at the new version there's nothing in it. I did find: 1) a table named "Name Autocorrect Save Failures" in my bad version. 2) I found another file with a different extension on it .....ldb. I'm assuming it's a locked copy of my database. I just want to get into the code behind the events so I can copy or print it out. My backup is a few days old and if I could just find a back way into the code I'd be ok. Any help would be so gratefully appreciated. (I've even installed service pack 2 and the updates from microsoft too).
