I am using a A.mdb database. You know when connecting the databae Microsoft automatically create a .ldb file. Unfortunately my pc shutdown when connecting the database. As a resutl after restart the pc i couldn't open the A.mdb file. The message shown A.mdb database is corrupted. A.mdb database was password lock but after corrupted if i give the valid password the database not open and showing the password not valid. Now i couldn't open the database. Now it shown A.mdb file with A.ldb file. Please advise me if pc shutdown with the connected .mdb databae then why the database not recover after restart? Also i tried with the option Database Repair and Recovery.

Please advise me and thanks again for your kind co-operation.

Best Regards

You can try to Compact and Repair your corrupt database. This is the very first solution you must try.

If it doesn't work, this means the database is severely corrupted and can't be fixed by MS Access. In such situation you can use some third-party MS Access repair or recovery software. If you are looking for an effective and relevant solution, I will suggest you to use Access Repair Kit software. It will resolve any type of corruption error from your database file and restore your maximum possible data to a new database file.

Regards.

First and foremost, make a backup!!! DO NOT work on anything but a copy of the backup!!!
Most likely the database can be repaired, in fact I have done that many times.

OK, that's officially weird on several levels. What the heck is it hoping to accomplish? How the heck did you track it down?

Oh, I get it. They're going to create some sock puppets to answer the question now with links to whatever service it is that they're offering. Good gosh, does that really work? I can't imagine it would be worth the time and trouble. Just write an article the demo's how awesome your tool set is. Offer a license to a couple of well-known bloggers to do a review. Any of these is going to be easier and more effective than sock-puppetry. Oh well, sitting back now and waiting for the "helpful" posts to arrive from newly created logins.

Back to the OP, in the event that somebody actually needs help...

If Access is prompting for a password, but there was no database password set - then the file cannot be repaired & you need to restore a backup.
