Brandon, MB -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/04/2019 -- Access is a database application included in the Microsoft Office suite. It is considered pivotal for users as they contain important records and a backup should be kept in order to avoid file corruption.
Reasons for a damaged database could include interrupted write operation, faulty networking hardware and opening and saving the .mdb/.accdb file in another program.
Signs of a damaged database include #Deleted appearing in certain records, inability to an object in the database or being unable to open the database file in Access altogether. The Compact and Repair utility in Microsoft Access is helps in restoring Microsoft Access database files.
Microsoft Jet is a database engine that is used in Microsoft Access and when used in a multi-user environment, and when multi users are reading and writing to the same database and Jet does not have a transaction log, database corruption could be quite likely.
Compacting a database recoups free space in a database by creating a new destination and by copying each object from the old database to the new. Repairing the database repairs the tables, queries and the indexes in the database but does not fix damaged forms, reports, macros, or modules.
Before you run the Compact and Repair utility on a database, you must make sure you have enough free space on the hard disk for both the original and compacted versions of the Access Database.
Also, make sure you have exclusive permissions for the Access database.
