Still can't open my Database.

P: n/a
I get the following message when I try to open my database:
The Microsoft Jet Database engine stopped the process because you and
another user are attempting to change the same data at the same time.
There is no other user. I have not changed anything on my computer or
in the database recently. I've tried to find/delete the
databasename.LDB file-couldn't find it. Tried to use WhoLockMe
program-No response.
Can you solve this problem? Thanks for any and all help.

Must be a corrupted table. Maybe a memo-field.
Have you tried to repair/compact?
Have you tried to import everything into a fresh new database ??

Is this Access 97 ?? You could try Jetcomp.exe to repair/compact the database.

.....what Arno said. You might also want to try decompiling as well.

It is Access 2002. I have tried to repair/compact but the entire DB
refuses to open. I have tried to import the corrupt database into a
new one but I get the same error message. Is Jetcomp.exe a separate
program? Where can I find it and how do I use it?

search the MS website for it. It comes with instructions.

Hi Speedbomb,

Simply create a shortcut to your MSAccess.exe file and put a "/decompile"
switch at the front of it, similar to this;

"C:\program files\MSOffice\MSAccess.exe" /decompile

To tell you the truth, it sounds like you might have one of those databases
that is corrupt beyond repair, but I'm crossing my fingers for you.
Hopefully the decompile will work, and if it does, make an immediate back up
of the file, re-compile it then compact and repair. Might be a little
paranoid instruction, but I've been there before and using have success
doing things this way (if it's not too far gone).
