Microsoft Access is a popular and widely used database management system, which is part of Microsoft Office Suite of products. It is an ideal DBMS for small and medium sized businesses to effectively manage their data. MS Access enables you to share the database over network and simultaneously update it. However, this configuration may cause database corruption in some situations and put you in need of Access database recovery
As a real-time example of this problem with Microsoft Access database, you may run across database corruption in following scenarios:
• You have one MDB file/Access database that is shared between two users.
• Both the machines have different operating system and Access versions.
• Suddenly the database is not accessible and you get the following message every time you try to access it:
“The Microsoft Office Access database engine could not find the object. Make sure the object exists and that you spell its name and the path name correctly.”...

MS Access has turned out to be one of the most integral applications of the corporate organizations due to its enormous and advance features. Hence, the popularity of MS Access is increasing day by day. MS Access stands out from the rest of its peers as it is integrated with a user friendly graphical user interface and comprises of Jet Database Engine. These features make the presence of MS Access database significant.
Large organizations use MS Access to store significant data. Hence, corruption of MS Access database is not at all acceptable.
Once the MS Access database file or the MDB file gets corrupted, you are not able to access any data from it. Moreover, corruption in the MS Access database file or the MDB file may lead to data deletion from the MDB database records. Thus, in order to avoid data loss, you will have to take appropriate steps to perform MS Access repair...

The extensibility of MS Access database format is the main reason why sometimes users fail to determine the Access database corruption. This happens because crashes and errors can also root from macros, VBA code, plug-ins, and the like reasons. To exemplify, let’s consider the following error message that can occur while trying to open an Access database:
‘Unrecognized Database Format’
This error can appear for the reasons mentioned below:
• You are trying to open an Access database in an earlier version.
• You are trying to open a corrupted/damaged database.
Fixing the Issue
If ‘Unrecognized Database Format’ occurs while attempting to open the database in an earlier version, you can apply any of the below possible solutions:
• Open the Access database in the later version of MS Access it was created
• Convert the database to the earlier version of MS Access. For this, you need to have the newer version of MS Access and follow the steps given below:...

Database corruption, a term that can take away sleeps of almost all database users. Corruption of Access database can have serious effects on your business, even running into its complete shutdown. Few common situations where the database corruption occurs are power outage, application malfunctioning, virus infection, file system damage, operating system corruption, and network failure. In most cases of database corruption, you receive an error message that halts the mounting of Access database and makes the database records inaccessible. A valid database backup allows the users to overcome the hazards created by the error message. While most of the database maintain a backup, those who forget to do so, can use an Access Database Recovery
tool to repair their corrupt database.
Consider a practical case, where you are working on your MS Access database and due to power outage, the system turns off. However, when you attempt to mount your database after the starting the system, you receive the below error message:...

There are different reasons contributing to MS Access database (MDB file) corruption. One of the reason for its corruption is interrupted conversion process of an Access database from an earlier version of MS Access. These interruptions disturb the process and cause it to stop. This further ignites the chances of mdb file corruption. When the file gets corrupted, its contents get out of your reach. To get your data back, you need to have a valid backup file. But, if the backup file is not available, then you need to Recover Access Database
via a powerful third-party repair tool.
For example – If you have an Access database and you want to convert it from an earlier version of MS Access, then the process may seem problematic and you may also receive an error message:
“There were compilation errors during the conversion or enabling of this database. The database has not been saved in a compiled state. The performance of this database will be impaired because Access will need to recompile the database for each session.”...

A program that is installed in your system to interact with host application and perform a specific function is known as a Plug-in, Snap-in, or Add-in. Microsoft Access users use this program to add custom commands and specialized features to save and maintain their database effectively. While installing a plug-in provides lots of benefits, incorrect or incomplete installation can also result into corruption of MS Access database. In such situations, you receive an error message that stops you from accessing the records stored in the database. For systematic access of your database records, a standard way is to restore the records from an updated backup. But, in absence of an updated backup or backup falling short to restore the required data, you will need to opt for an advanced third-party Access Recovery

Modules in Microsoft Access are the storage components that store all the code required to perform different functions in your database. These Modules are primarily created by the programmers for making their routine tasks re-usable. In most cases, these MS Access modules are associated with reports and forms. Although compiling the code saved in Modules is a trouble-free task, corruption in database might occur when you attempt to edit the code while the Module is running. In such situations, the data stored in the database becomes inaccessible. To surmount the dangers created due to Access database corruption, a standard way is to restore the data from an updated backup. However, if the backup is corrupted or backup falls short to restore the required data, then you will need to use an advanced Access Database Recovery
software to repair the corrupted database...
