Access Recovery to Fix Jet Engine and Access Database Corruption

Is your MS Access database (MDB or ACCDB) behaving strangely during start-up or while accessing? Are you unable to open Microsoft Access database? Are you experiencing Jet Engine 4.0 corruption errors in Microsoft Access 2000? All this may occur due to corruption of the database or its objects. After corruption, Access application can not read/understand the contents of the database, until you repair it or restore it from backup. If the backup is not available or not updated, access database recovery methods are required.

Access database corruption may take place due to a number of system, application, and environmental factors. The corruption can be identified by odd behavior of database, corruption error messages, or inability of database to open. You may encounter Access database corruption due to virus infection, application crash, improper system shutdown, simultaneous editing of the database, and more.

Microsoft Access application enables you to Repair Access File through inbuilt tool - Compact and Repair. It works in a number of MDB or ACCDB corruption scenarios and restores your database to a working state.

Compact and Repair Tool

The Compact and Repair utility is a combination of two programs - Compact and Repair. The Compact tool eliminates empty space in Access database. It does this by making a new database and then copying every object of old database to new one. If you do not want to create a new database while compacting the database, the tool creates a temporary Access database, exports all database objects from old to temporary database, deletes original Access database, and renames temporary database with the name of original database.

The Repair tool of Compact and Repair utility attempts to repair the database tables, queries, and indexes. However, it doesn't attempt to repair the damaged reports, modules, macros, and forms.

Although, Compact and Repair tool helps you in several situations to get your database repaired, but it does not repair all database objects and can not handle severe corruption situations. In such circumstances, third-party Access Database Repair applications come to your rescue.

The applications are powerful enough to handle all types of Access database corruption scenarios. They thoroughly scan entire database using high-end scanning algorithms and retrieve all database objects. These access repair tools do not demand sound technical skills as they have simple and rich graphical user interface. The software preserve the integrity of the database due to their read-only and non-destructive demeanor.

Access Recovery is a comprehensive application that repairs and restores damaged MDB and ACCDB database. The software works well with Microsoft Access 2007, 2003, 2002, and 2000. It recovers all database objects such as tables, queries, indexes, reports, forms, macros, modules, and constraints.

Fixing Application and System-related Issues in MS Access

Ever wondered why you receive error messages while accessing your MS Access database? While the reasons could be countless, the main reason for the error message remains as application related issues.
These problems do allow the Access database to mount, further resulting in inaccessibility of database records. However, you can feel relaxed in case you have maintained a valid backup of your database and other data saved in your system. But in case you haven't, then you will need to use advanced access database recovery software to resolve application-related issues.

Below listed are some application-related issues that can result into an error message, while mounting the database:

A fragmented Access database
A corrupted Access database
Incorrect Registry settings
Bug in Microsoft Access
A damaged Access database
Corrupt dynamic link libraries (*.dll files)

Follow the below resolutions to resolve all the application-related issues:

Install all DLL file(s) required by MS Access.
Rebuild and reset the Windows registry settings for MS Access.
In case of corrupted database, import all the database objects to a new database and compile them.
In case of fragmented database, compact and repair the database.
In case of severely corrupted database, restore the database the from an updated backup.

In most cases, the above steps help you to resolve the error messages caused due to application malfunctioning. However, if all the above steps fail to resolve the problem, then you will need to repair your corrupt database then it means that your database is severely corrupted and can only be repaired by using an advanced third-party Access Database Repair application.

Interrupted Write Operation May Cause Access Database Corruption

Are you unable to open your Microsoft Access database after improper shutdown? Are you facing error message while trying to access any particular MS Access database object? Such behavior are caused by improper shutdown of Microsoft Access application. It may damage the database objects, database files, or application files, and eventually lead to significant data loss situation, and call for access database repair solution to sort the problem.

It is highly recommended to exit Microsoft Access application, by clicking on the Close or Exit option on File menu. But, if any Microsoft Access database write process is being performed, and suddenly Access is shut down, incorrectly, Jet Database Engine can mark the database or ACCDB/MDB file as corrupted/suspect.

The problem may take place when your computer is turned off manually without shutting down the system or if power outage occurs. Other circumstances might not shut down the MS Access but can interfere with write process of data (on the hard drive) by the Jet Engine while database is open. For instance, you may encounter this problem when the hard drive malfunctions or the networks face data collision.

When any of the above interruptions take place, Microsoft Jet Database Engine may mark your Access database as possibly damaged.

When Jet Engine starts the write operation, it sets up a flag and resets the flag after completion of write operation. In case if the operation does not complete successfully, flag remains intact. When you attempt to reopen the database, Jet finds out that flag is set and reports that Access database is damaged.

The above behavior leads to severe data loss situations and you need to restore your valuable data from the most recent backup to get your critical data back. However, in case the backup is not updated or is unavailable, Access Repair through third-party applications become need of the hour.

The Access File Repair software are powerful enough to carry out thorough scan of the corrupted MS Access database file and extract all inaccessible tables, forms, reports, macros, and modules. The access repair tools come equipped with simple, self-descriptive, and rich graphical user interface to enable you to carry out recovery on your own.

Stellar Phoenix Access Recovery Software is a read-only and powerful tool that provides assured recovery of corrupted Access database. The software works well with Microsoft Access 2007, 2003, 2002, and 2000. In addition to all the access database objects, it also recovers database constraints such as primary key and foreign key.

Rectifying MS Access Error “Record(s) cannot be read..”

Tables in MS Access database (MDB file) have planned segregation of data in the form of columns and rows and serve as effective storage solutions for your data. Tables have separate cell which facilitate storing data separately.
But, when we talk about corruption, tables are no exception. Table corruption may occur due to a number of reasons like virus, system crash, improper system shutdown, and more.
Its corruption or damage may render all its data inaccessible. But, the data can be easily accessed and restored if you have an updated backup file. However, in case of unavailability of a backup file,one may access file repair using a third-party file repair tool.

Imagine a situation – Suppose, one day when you try to open a table in MDB file, an error message occurs that states:

“Record(s) cannot be read; no read permission on 'xxxx' (Error 3112)”

After this error pops up, the data stored in the table becomes inaccessible.

This error may occur owing to the following reasons:

If you do not have required or necessary permissions to view the table or its data.
If the table or data stored inside the table is corrupted or damaged.

Use any of the following measures to solve the issue:

In case you do not have permissions to view table's data, then you need to consult your administrator to change the permission settings.
In case the table object is corrupted or damaged, you should use an inbuilt utility present in MS Access, known as 'Compact and Repair' to repair the database table.
However, if this tool fails to perform its task, then use a powerful access database repair software to Repair MDB File and retrieve all the data stored inside it. These applications are abundantly available in the software market, but choosing the best out of them is a confusing and tedious task. Generally, the task of such software is to restore the file without overwriting its original contents and settings. In addition, you do not need any prior technical skills to perform repair as these applications are built with interactive user interface.

Access Recovery is an excellent repair software that resolves all issues of corruption related to MDB file(s). This MDB Repair software can repair database constraints including Primary Keys. It also repairs all database objects like tables, queries, etc and supports MS Access 2007, 2003, 2002, and 2000. This is a read-only software that works with Windows 7, Vista, XP, 2003, and 2000.

Tips to resolve “Invalid Database Object”

An MS Access database object, such as, tables, views, forms, etc. can be corrupted due to various logical reasons, such as, simultaneous modification of same database object by more than two users, improper shutdown of the system when the database object was opened, malicious software like virus, and many more similar reasons. An error message is an easy way to identify that the database object is corrupted. A major hazard that the database user encounters after database object corruption is inaccessibility of all its stored records. In such cases, if the user needs to access the database object, then s/he needs to restore the data from an updated backup. But, the problem sustains in case the backup file is not available or is corrupted. To repair such corrupted Access database objects, the user needs to use an advanced access file repair application.

Unexpected Error in Access 2002, 2003, and 2007

MS Access application malfunction is one of the main reasons for corruption of Access database files (.mdb and .accdb). Malfunctioning primarily occurs due to improper shutdown of the application, virus attack, or accidentally deleting the necessary files of the application. In most cases of application malfunctioning, an error message pops up on the screen, resulting into inaccessibility of all database file records. To easily cope up with such Access database corruption scenarios, most of the database users maintain an adequate backup. But if in case, the users forget to create an adequate backup or backup falls short to restore the preferred database records, then the database users need to repair their database by using an advanced access repair software.

Lets take a practical instance to discuss the above case. Below is an error message that occurs when you attempt open a database file created in either Access 2002, 2003, or 2007:

“Microsoft Access encountered an unexpected error while attempting to recover from a failed save (or send). Your data access page may not be in a usable state. Please attempt to save to a different location.”

This error message does not allow you to mount your database and makes the database records inaccessible. The same error message appears for MS Access 2002, 2003, or 2007 application.


Above error message primarily appears when the database file gets damaged due to application malfunction.


To resolve the above error, MS Access repair utility “Compact and Repair” needs to be used. Below are the steps that enable you to use the repair utility:

1.Select 'Tools' option.
2.Choose 'Compact and Repair Database' option.
3.Select 'Database to Compact From’ option.
4.Click 'Compact' option.
5.Click 'Save' option.

The repair utility ensures access database repair in most corruption scenarios. However, if the repair utility fails to resolves the corruption, then you will need to use an advanced Access Repair application. A third-party repair application can be downloaded from the Internet and used to repair the database, regardless of their cause of corruption.

Access Recovery is an effective Access Database Repair software to repair database files created in MS Access 2007, 2003, XP (2002), and 2000.
