Microsoft Jet database engine stopped.... problem with fixing it

P: n/a
Hello all!

I have a tough thing to fix. I have a database which has been corrupted. I
got the following error messages while trying to open it:

The Microsoft Jet database engine stopped the process because you and
another user are attempting to change the same data at the same time

The database is protected by password, so when I want to open I got the
above error message. I cannot import data from this corrupted database into
the new one and I cannot fix it up using Microsoft Jet Utility 4.0.
(jetcomp.exe). Is it possible to fix such database yet or this database has
to be throwed away to the garbage?

Please help me. I would be very grateful for help

Thanx
Marcin from Poland.

Are you opening it with the workgroup file that was used to secure
it?

If not, you won't be able to use JETCOMP or Access to try to fix it.

You also won't have any luck with any reputable Jet repair services,
like Peter Miller's PKSolutions.com, if you can't provide the valid
workgroup file.

Of course, if it's just password protected, then you should try
removing the database password in code. This is supposedly a
complete triviality, which is exactly why I've never considered
using a database password.

Maybe starting the mdb with the parameter /decompile would help.
I have recovered from various "non-repairable" disasters that way.
If it opens, compile it again.

Hello!

I don`t have any workgroup file created for that mdb file. I have only
database password created for this database.

How to remove a database password from the code from mdb file?

Thank you for your help...
Kind regards

Hello again!

I have created a shortcut to mdb file with such shortcut call:
"C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office 2000\Office\MSACCESS.EXE"
"D:\Platnik.mdb" /decompile

But when I am trying to open it I got the same error message:

Microsoft Jet engine stopped the process....

I don`t believe that this database can`t be fixed up, but I would like
to make mistake of it.

thanx for your still help

You can Google on it. I wouldn't know about it, except what I've
heard, because I never considered a database password to be anything
other than a worthless feature.
