Error accessing file. Network connection may have been lost

P: n/a
Help!!!!!!!!

This may have been posted bfore, but i cannot find it.

Have written a db in access 2003, opened in access 2000, saved,
re-opened,etc - all was fine.

Added some new forms / reports, again saved and reopened - all was working
fine.

Then ran copact and repair under 200 and hit:

Error accessing file. Network connection may have been lost.

Have tried
http://support.microsoft.com/default...b;en-us;304548

Does not help at all....Any ideas?

TIA - Pete

Pete, it does sound like you have been bitten by the very nasty bug in that
article.

Unfortunately, the database is not recoverable. You will need to restore an
older backup, and redo the more recent parts of the project.

To prevent it recurring, make sure you apply the service packs to your
Access 2000.

Thanks for the info, However - all of the previous version of the DB appear
to suffer from the same symptoms - what triggers this in the first place and
how do I avoid it happening when I re-write?

Apply the service pack.

From memory, this was fixed in one of the earlier service packs, but grab
SP3 for Office 2000 and the issue will not recur.

Not for this issue, but be sure to get SP8 for JET 4 as well. Both are
available in the Downloads section at http://support.microsoft.com
