Error Message Post Microsoft Access Corruption

Many organizations use Microsoft Access database to maintain their daily tasks. In most cases, these tasks are automated and do not require any database user. While these tasks run automatically and execute the data, they can be halted due to various reasons. A common reason responsible for halting of these tasks being the corruption in MS Access database. In such situations, the best way to overcome such corruption scenarios is by restoring the data from an updated backup. However, if no database backup is available or backup falls short to restore the desired information, then you will need to use a powerful access database repair tool to repair your database.

Consider a practical scenario, where you have financial reports get updated on a daily basis. The updation process went smoothly every day until you encounter the below error message:

“Invalid Password”
“Run-time error '3031':
Not a valid password.”

The above password error messages appear even though you have not assigned any password on your database. The database becomes unmountable after you encounter any of the above error messages. Additionally, the same error messages appear each time you attempt to access the data.


MS Access database corruption. Few main causes of corruption can be improper system shutdown, virus attack, application malfunction, and human error.


For complete troubleshooting of both the above error messages, you will need to restore the data from an updated backup.
Note: The Compact and Repair utility fails to perform in this case because you do not have a password.

In case of no backup availability, an ideal way to repair the database is by using an advanced Access Database Repair application. These repair access applications use intensive scanning methods to repair corrupt MS Access database files (accdb and mdb) after almost all corruption scenarios. With easy-to-understand graphical user documentation, these tools become self-explanatory and do not require any prior technical knowledge. Such database repair software provide risk-free repair by leaving the original database file untouched and unmodified.
