Corrupt split database

    We have a split database and the back end is corrupt. Access 2002. Front
    end is about 88 meg, back end 24 meg. We suspect that the db was closed
    improperly and thus caused the corruption. We have attempted all of the
    normal fixes. Are there any non-traditional methods of restoring a db, short
    of buying a third party utility.

    Any help appreciated,
    Connie

    First, always work on a copy of the database. Working on the original may
    make it impossible for a repair service to fix it.

    Download a copy of JetComp.exe:

    http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;273956

    Also have a look at the Microsoft KB article:

    http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;209137

    Then have a look at Tony Toews' Access Corruption FAQ at:

    http://www.granite.ab.ca/access/corruptmdbs.htm

    for some suggestions. Unfortunately, some corruption cannot be fixed - you
    may need to create a new database, import what can be salvaged, and recreate
    the rest.

    Although it's a paid service, Peter Miller does an outstanding job of saving
    corrupt databases. Try this URL:

    Do you have the information to bring the database up to date from the most
    recent backup copy? If not, there's a lesson to be learned from that, too.
