Acc 97 - unrecognized database format

P: n/a
Hi There

Am having problems with the database corrupting. Have installed Microsoft
Jet 3.5 Service Pack 3
but this has not helped. Users are mentioning that the system is slower.

There are around 25 users, each with an Access front end, all connected to
the Access back end residing on the server. The front end is connected via
'linked tables'.

You're 100% sure it's an Access 97 database? Normally that error
occurs if you're trying to open an Access 2000 database with A97.
Other than that, I'm not sure right away.

To be clear: the service pack is installed at each workstation?

Bad network hardware can cause the damage of the database file. To
find out which worstation is involved in damaging the database use the
LDBView.exe tool from the Microsoft download center.

Hmm, I wouldn't have thought it would be much slower. But then I immediately update
to Jet 3.5 SP3 whenever I work with A97 so I wouldn't really notice the difference.

For more information on corruption including possible causes, determining the
offending PC, retrieving your data, links, official MS KB articles and a list of
vendors who state they can fix corruption see the Microsoft Access Corruption FAQ at
