“Record is deleted” Error Message post .accdb file corruption

A shared Microsoft Access database on a network allows the authorized database users to preview and modify the records saved in that database. This allows the users to easily and quickly modify the records and update the Access database. While Access database sharing provides lots of advantages, it can also result into corruption of database if two or more users modify the records simultaneously. In such situations, all the records saved in the database becomes inaccessible. To overcome such database corruption scenarios, the best way is to restore the data from an updated backup. However, if no backup is available or backup falls short to restore the required number of records, then you will need to opt for advanced access repair application that can repair your corrupted database.

To illustrate this, consider a practical scenario where you encounter the below error message when you attempt to run a query to access the records saved in your Access 2007 database (Finance):

“Record is deleted”

The above error message appears each time you attempt to access your Finance database. Furthermore, all the records saved in Finance database becomes inaccessible after the above error message appears.


The root cause for the above error message is corruption of Finance database due to simultaneous execution of Finance database by two or more users.


To repair your corrupted .accdb file and access the records saved in it, you will need to use the inbuilt repair utility named “Compact and Repair.” To use the utility, you will need to take the below steps:

1.Select “Manage” after clicking on Microsoft Office icon
2.Select “Compact and Repair Database” option
3.Select the Finance database (.accdb file), and click Compact.
4.Assign an appropriate name to the repaired .accdb file, and then click Save.

However, if the problem persists even after using the repair utility, then you will need to import all the database components to a new Access 2007 database. But if in case, the error message still repairs, then you will need to use advanced Access Repair application to repair your corrupted Access database.

Access Recovery is an effective access database repair software that repairs corrupted Access databases after almost all database corruption issues. The repair tool supports Microsoft Access 2007, 2003, XP (2002), and 2000, and can Repair Access database objects such as tables, queries, forms, reports, macros, and modules.
