Fixing “Reserver Error (-1524)...” Error Message

Queries in MS Access database enable to you sort and analyze the Access database records, quickly and systematically. A query displays the desired information available in the database, based on some specific criteria. Each query in MS Access is assigned a different name. While in most cases, the queries display your desired information, there might be instances where you receive an error message, instead of your desired information. One of most common reasons for the occurrence of the error message is corruption of MS Access database. To resolve the error message and to make the query run, an easy way is to restore the data from an updated backup. But in case of unavailability of an updated backup or backup falling short of restoring the required data, you will need to use advanced access database repair tool.

Consider a practical case, where you receive the below error message after running a query in Access 2007:

“Reserved error (-1524); there is no message for this error.”

The same error message appears each time you attempt to run the same query.


The root cause for the occurrence of the above error message is corruption/damage of MS Access database.


To repair the corrupt database, an easy way is to repair it by using “Compact and Repair” tool. To do so, you will need to follow the below steps:

1.On the Toolbar, click 'Tools' option
2.Select 'Database Utilities' under the list and click 'Compact and Repair Database'.
3.Choose the database that you want to repair in the 'Database to Compact From’.
4.Click 'Compact' to begin the repair process.
5.Select a safe location to save the repaired database file.
6.Click 'Save'.

The possibilities of occurrence of the error message do exist, even after following the above mentioned steps. In such situations, the only way to repair your database is by using advanced Access Repair application. Such repair access tools are easy to understand as they come along with highly interactive user documentation.
