Access 2003/2010 fix.

I have a corrupted mdb access file 61Mbytes. There seems to be many paid for programme 'fixes' around that will repair and extract the data, I can do that. BUT I cannot see a program that will actually REPAIR the database so you can double click it and get the original programme to work. Anyone have any suggestions.

Thanks, one of the problems is that I am trying to fix the file on W7/2010 when it was created on a computer XP/2003, so I will try repairing it on the computer that it originated on. I have several computers, its just that the W7 one is faster! Thanks for suggesting things to try. Mike

I have the same problem with a corrupted mdb access file 350Mbytes, but none of these solutions works for me. What is the best tool for repair an access database?

Hi Carlota, welcome to Windows Seven Forums.

What version of Access are you using. Older versions of Access us the .mdb suffix, but later ones use .accdb suffix, so if you are trying to open an older version database with a later version can cause problems. So please post back details of what you are trying to do.

I have Outlook 2010 but it does not work with my Word 2003. I do not have the spell check as a write and there is no integration with Word 2003. Is there a way in which I can integrate these programs or do I have to buy the Word 2010? I'm absolutely happy with the 2003 version.
