Hello guys,

I have used AccessFix with some success ... but sometimes the file is just TOO damaged to do anything!

Before investing in any software, try these methods in this order ...
Backup*
Compact/Repair
Import all objects into a new DB
JetComp Utility (Free from MS)
Decompile
Try to attach programmatically from another DB
Then move on to the retail stuff.

There are many software vendors in the market which provide such solutions. And most of them are available with demo/trial version for free evaluation. So before any Access user can pay for any such paid software, he/she must download free demo/trial version. Why? Demo version can show what we could actually recover from the corrupt Access database before we can pay for the software. If any MS Access user is planning to purchase any such paid software, he/she must evaluate it. Also, don't forget to read the Money Back Policy of the software vendor.

I had a corrupt Access database, but I didn't use any paid software to repair that. I used JetComp.exe that actually worked for me since corruption was not that severe. Thankfully I found this post on Google - http://wordpress.semnaitik.com/2013/07/17/...abase-manually/

To follow up on niesz's comment ... if you just import all of the objects into a new database, you may be importing the problem as well. If I have a major corruption, I will export the modules as text or simply copy/paste them into Word or notepad. Then I compact/repair the database and paste them back into the modules. This should remove any corrupted code.

Take a moment to review http://www.devhut.net/2015/01/21/stellar-p...-repair-review/

I agree with niesz that before going down the road of such software, try the common solutions first.

I'll also add, and obviously if you're at the point of looking at software you're past that point, but this clearly highlights the critical importance of a good backup strategy! It would have avoided the entire issue.
