I know that a lot of problems can be in MS Access. But my troubles is in .mdb file. It can't be opened from yesterday, and I don't see the reason of this. I'm on MS Access 2016.

This is a very frequent question Ghazaala. Your best bet is to search in Bytes.com for help on this (Use site:bytes.com access corrupt database.), ignoring the first batch of results which are just adverts.

Most of the points you'll find are :
  1. Make regular backups of the database so that you have one to revert to when the database is unrecoverable.
  2. Decompile and Compact/Repair the corrupted database.
  3. Create a new, blank, database and import all the objects across that you can.
  4. If none of the above have helped, and it's financially worth it to you, approach a third party to help. At this point it's also very important to review your backup policy of course, as it clearly hasn't protected you from this.

There must be some error message or something to know the problem.
