Fixing “This object needs a newer version...” Error Message

No database user wants his database to get corrupted. However, it is not in his hands and there are numerous cases where the database can get corrupted. Few common reasons liable for MS Access database corruption are improper system/database shutdown, MS Office malfunctioning, and virus attack. One of the common ways by which a user can analyze that his database is corrupted is the occurrence of error message while mounting his database. In such cases, user is unable to access the database records. For overcoming this, the user needs to restore the database from an updated backup. But in case, no database backup is available or backup falls short in restoring the data, then s/he needs to perform 'Compact and Repair' or use third-party access database recovery application.

Consider a practical case, where you attempt to mount your MS Access database and receive the below error message:

“This object needs a newer version of the Microsoft Jet database module”

After the occurrence of the above error message, you are neither able to view the database records nor able to perform any operation on those records. The same error message appears each time you try to mount your Access database.


The above error message appears when your database is corrupt.


Compact and Repair your database to overcome the above error message. To do so, follow the below steps:

1.Select 'Compact and Repair Database' feature from 'Tools' option
2.Now, choose 'Database to Compact From’ feature
3.Click 'Compact'
4.Click 'Save'

In most cases, the above error message gets resolved after you perform Compact and Repair. But, if the error message pops up again, then your database is severely corrupted. For such cases, you will need to repair the database using effective access database repair software.

An MS Access Repair utility adopts powerful, yet risk-free repairing algorithms to repair any logically corrupted database. The tool ensures complete safety of Access database as it performs repair without modifying the original file.

Access Recovery exceeds your expectations and repairs Access database to the maximum possible level. The Access Repair application is competent enough to repair databases created in MS Access 2007, 2003, XP (2002), and 2000. Compatible with Windows 7, Vista, 2003, XP, and 2000, the read only tool recovers all database objects, such as, tables, reports, queries, and more.
