    I have strange database format problem. Database file can't be opened on one
    of our Widows boxes. MS Access gives "Unrecognized database format error ..."
    message. Database is made in Access 97 and in original location (Win2000) is
    working fine. Problem is while database opening on my laptop (WinXP, MS
    Office 2003). The same file was succesfully opened on some other compters
    with WinXP and Win2000 with MS Office2000 and 2003. Tonight I have
    reinstalled operating system on my laptop, and with fresh system and office
    installation the problem remain. I have no idea what is going on. The only
    difference between WInXP boxes where this database works and my laptop is
    that: my laptop have WinXP volume licenced version the other computers have
    OEM versions installed.

    Thank you,
    Krzysztof Lamorski

    Try reregistering DAO:

    Start ... Run

    regsvr32.exe "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\DAO\dao360.dll"

    Registration of dao360.dll did not help.

    Sorry for the delay. I have been working with a brand new computer trying to
    get everything configured.

    If re-registering DAO didn't help, I'd guess that the copy of the file is
    corrupt. Try going through the steps at Tony Toews corruption page:
