DB Nonresponsive

    I have a Database that I compacted. The DB is now completely nonresponsive -
    the file appears in the folder list - I double click the file, ACCESS
    launches, but the file never opens. I receive no error message, it just does
    not open. I cannot link or import from the DB either. Strange stuff. Any
    ideas?

    Not much to go on.

    One thing you might try is to create a new blank database and copy all
    of the objects from the faulty database.

    Do you see the DB Object Explorer window? If not, hit F11. Does it appear?
    Try pressing Ctl+Break to stop any code that might be in an infinite loop.
    Try pressing Ctl+G to get to the Immediate window and type something, like
    ?CurrentDb.Name and then hit Enter to see if it will "respond"

    Thanks Larry. Part of the problem is that it also seems to not allow that.
    I created a new DB, tried both link and import, choose the tables in the
    problematic DB, and it similarly wigs out. It seems like it is attaching it
    but nothing happens. I have been using ACCESS for 10 years and have never
    seen anything like this.

    Thanks Danny. Yes, I do see it in the window tree - the file appears there,
    I choose it, it seems to be opening it, then it seems to sort of time out.
    The DB never opens, I get no error message, Access is NOT hung up - just the
    grayed-out screen as if I am trying to create a new DB.

    What error messages did it give in each case? Usually Access
    complains before it quits.

    There is an outfit flogging Access repair software. I have not tried
    it and make no recommendation. They offer a free trial via download.

    Revert to the Database you Compacted. (You have to go out of your way to
    destroy it... choosing the same DB as the target of the Compact, or deleting
    the original afterward.) Instead of Compacting, create a new, blank database
    and copy in all the objects from the original. You'll still have some
    cleanup to do (relationships, etc.), but that should get you past the
    immediate problem.

    If you did go out of your way to destroy the original, then that, too, is a
    lesson learned.

    Did you find out what was going on with your db? Exactly the same thing has
    happened to one of my clients: it is their data set and strangely they are
    still linked to the tables on their front-end but can't open the database.
    They emailed me a copy and I get exactly the same symptoms as you have -
    can't open it, import or link to the tables, repair it or anything.

    Please let me know if you managed to do anything!

    Larry -
    Thanks for the reply. I guess I don't quite understand what you are
    suggesting. I have attempted to "Compact and Repair" the problematic db.
    From the generic ACCESS screen, I chose that option, select on the
    problematic DB, and then nothing happens - no error message, no activity.
    Maybe I don't understand what you are suggesting. I still have the DB on my
    harddrive, haven't yet deleted it but don't know what else to do with it.

    This sounds intriguing and you sound reasonably competent. If you
    like you can email me the database and I'll take a look. I promise to
    delete it as soon as I've diagnose the problem.

    Please zip before emailing to me tony at granite dot ab dot ca.

    Tony -
    Thanks for the offer. i wish I could, but the DB is huge - - 1.3 gigs
    upzipped, 300mgs zipped. I tried again to link or import again from it - no
    dice. What remains an interesting caveat is that I can actually important
    from it via ODBC into another software application - thus the DB is still
    "live" to some degree. Again, just to recap: i double click on the DB in
    windows explorer, or through "open" in access, it appears to be loading, then
    it just stops. ACCESS does NOT freeze up, it technically remains responsive
    - meaning, the menu is functional, etc. It just doesn't open the DB. But
    again, I can import FROM the DB into SPSS (software package) via ODBC.

    Hi Sean/Tony

    My db, which exhibits exactly the same behaviour (and the data is accessible
    via a front end already linked but can't link another front end or import
    data or open it) is smaller, 13mb zipped so if it's OK with Tony I'll send
    him mine.

    Sounds great to me if Tony can do that. Also, just as an FYI - I am using
    Access 2003 - I recently upgraded to this version. I have never had this
    problem with previous versions of ACCESS

    That's interesting - I'm using Access 2000. When I tried to open the file
    using Access 2002, I got a message telling me that the file may be corrupt
    and suggesting I try to repair it, but again that wasn't possible. I've
    never come across this before in any version of Access and am sure it's
    undocumented by Microsoft.

    Yeah, that is huge.

    Yes, that's one of the tips on my website. Well sort of. There are
    some other alternate methods of opening an MDB that get past the
    corruption flag.
