Corupted database file

P: n/a
Hi anyone!!!

I have an access database file which is corupted after a computer crash.

I have tried a compact and repair which failed.

I have purchased an Access Repair package which can only find 3 out of the
40 tables.

When I try to open the files I receive an eroor message saying "Tables.mdb"
need repairing or isn't a database file. Do you want to recover yes or no?
Upon selecting Yes, a second message is given saying "Unrecognised database
format"

Please, can anyone help?

Thanks, Scott

Get your money back on that one for starters.
