Fixing problems post Database Conversion from Access 2003 to 2007

Databases created in MS Access 2000, 2002, and 2003 can be easily converted to Access 2007 by following few simple steps. The conversion to Access 2007 (.accdb) supports new features, including enhanced security, attachments and use of multivalued fields. Although, the conversion process can be performed even by a novice user, it might result into numerous problems, if not performed systematically. The outcome of unsystematic conversion, in most cases, is corruption of MS Access database. The records stored in the corrupted database can not be accessed, as the database could not be mounted. In such cases, the database records need to be restored from an updated backup, primarily stored on some other destination. But, in absence of an updated database backup, you will need to use an advanced access repair tool to repair the corrupt database.

Consider a practical scenario, when you were converting your MS Access 2003 database file to MS Access 2007. While the conversion process was in progress, your system froze, halting the conversion process in between. With no options left, you perform an improper shutdown of your system. However, when you restart your system and attempt to access the original Access 2003 database file, you view that all the Macros, Forms, and Reports were gone.


The root cause for missing of the database components is corruption of Access 2003 database file due to improper system shutdown while ongoing conversion process.


To resolve the above problem and access the data saved in the database objects, you will need to Compact and Repair the corrupted database file. However, if compacting and repairing the file fails to resolve the issue and the database components still remain inaccessible, then you will need to search for an effective third party Access Repair software.

An repair access tool is developed by talented database recovery experts and ensures maximum repair. The software embeds powerful scanning methods to scan and repair the corrupt database file. With no requirement of any technical knowledge, the tool allows even a novice database user to perform file repair.
