Unpredictable behavior of MS Access

Are you viewing strange error messages while opening your MS Access database? Or the records from the database components is missing? Or you able to work with only few database components? If the answer for any of the above questions is 'yes', then in most cases your Access database file is corrupt. Corruption of MS Access database causes unpredictable behavior, resulting into numerous personal and professional hazards. An easy way to overcome the unpredictable behavior of the MS Access database is by restoring the database from an updated backup. In most cases, the database administrators maintain a proper backup on a different storage media. But, if the backup created by administrators itself gets corrupted, then the only way to repair the database is by using an advanced access repair utility.

In most of the corruption scenarios, MS Access detects that the file is corrupted. However, if MS Access is unable to detect, then your Access file might be containing a reference of another MS Access file. In any case, if you view that your MS Access database is behaving unpredictably, then you will need to Compact and Repair it.

The inbuilt utility of MS Access – Compact and Repair – is competent enough to repair the following:

Corrupt MS Access database components like, tables, forms, modules, and reports.
Lost/missing information related to the structure of an MS Access VBA project.
Lost/missing information required to open the database objects.

To use the above utility, you will need to follow the below steps:

1.Select the option 'Tools' and then select 'Compact and Repair Database'.
2.Click on 'Database to Compact From' option and then click on 'Compact' option. The repair process will begin once click on the above option.
3.Click 'Save' and give a unique name to repaired Access database.

The above repairing steps fail to repair an Access database, in case of severe database corruption. A database gets severely damaged due to fatal virus attack, operating system damage, or network failure. To repair your database in such cases, you will need a powerful Access Repair application. These repair access tools use intensive repairing procedures to repair the database.

Access Recovery, a reliable Access Database Repair tool, provides repair of Access database regardless of the cause of logical damage. Supported by MS Access 2007, 2003, XP (2002), and 2000, the repair utility is designed for Windows 7, Vista, 2003, XP, and 2000.
