Repairing Damaged Macro in Access database

Macros in MS Access are primarily used to automate tasks and add functionality to your reports, controls, and forms. These Access components save your time by automating a list of actions that you perform often. You can run Macros directly, or using another Macro, or from a VBA (Visual Basic Application) procedure. While running Macros is easy, the task gets halted when a Macros get corrupted or damaged. In such situations, the Macros become inaccessible. For complete accessibility of Macros, an ideal way is to restore the data from an updated backup. However, if you have not maintained any backup or backup falls short to recover the required Macros, then you will need to use an advance access database repair tool to recover your desired Macros.

As a practical scenario, you have created a macro that allows you start a financial report directly from one of your data entry forms. However, when you click on the data entry form, the Macro does not execute – leaving you in absence of financial report. In such situations, you receive an error message stating you the cause of the error.


The main reason behind the occurrence of the above error message is corruption of Macros. Few ways that can result in corruption of Macros are improper system shutdown (while Macro is fetching records), operating system corruption, virus attack, and human errors.


To repair the corrupted Macros, you will need to follow any of the below steps:

Create a new Macro and copy the contents to new macro.
Create a new Macro and re-create all the contents of original Macro.
Reload the file after removing all bad and strange data.

However, if the above above resolutions fail to perform, then your Macros are corrupted beyond any repair. In such situations, only a powerful Access Database Repair software can enable you to recover your Macros. These repair access applications are developed by highly talented data recovery experts and use effective scanning algorithms to recover your Macros. With highly interactive user-interface, to-the-point documentation, and non-destructive nature, these tools provide safe and quick recovery.

The non-destructive software provides risk-free repair of databases by storing the repaired database on default or new user-specified location, leaving the original database unmodified.
