Too vague Albert, try giving more detail such as run-time errors, an idea of
complexity, amount of data involved, whether or not your database is "split"
etc. In the meantime, have you tried importing your objects into a new
database file? You could do this progressively and test for corruption at
regular intervals.

googling.

If you mean "JETCOMP.exe" then IIRC it ships with Office. Albert, search
your hard drive, you may already have it. Also, as previously stated, try
importing each table into a new mdb.

if all else fails, and it's worth money to you, see if Peter Miller can
do it.

It'll cost ya, but it's often cheaper than the alternatives... (time
for a good tried and tested backup plan, too!)

I have MS Office 97 pro. I did a custom install. I installed *everything* for
Assess, Excel, and Word. Took the defaults for the rest. "JETCOMP.EXE" not on
my machine.

Not surprising, as I believe it was developed well after release of Access
97. So, you need to visit http://support.microsoft.com and search for
JetComp, download it, and give it a try. It may or may not do the trick, but
is worth trying.
