Database error

Hi,
I have an ASP application.
I am entering some records through the asp page.
I was using MSACCESS 97 database.
After entering 70 records i got the following error


Microsoft JET Database Engine error '80004005'
Unrecognized database format 'E:\Inetpub\wwwroot\SISOHOME\mdb\Skills.mdb'.
/pmo/SkillsMatrix.asp, line 108

After this error i was not able to open the table where the records were captured.The entire table got

corrupted.
I wasn't even able to repiar the table.
I downloaded the service pack for JET4.0 and ran the application again.
It worked for sometime and the crashed and corrupted the database again.So i upgraded my existing DB
 MS ACCESS 2000.
I reinstalled jet4.0 .
But again the table from the DB crashed!!!!
Pls explain me what has happened???and also let me know how to correct it.(Compacting and reapiring

delets the table from the mdb)
I am not able to trace whether it is coding problem, databse problem or system problem.
Regards,
Seeya

Seeya,

This just happened to my database as well. I'm using Acc97 on a WinNT2k server with SP2 and SRP1 installed. I'm also loosing database connections at irregular intervals.

Is your situation similar?

excuse me if i am being naive but jet4 only works with access versions above 97. you should be using jet3.5 as a driver? thats why jet 4 doesnt understand the 97 format

that's the reason why most DBs get corrupt...

what's this for an answer??
do i need to be an cleanup volenteer to get fairness???
when the experts are asked for comments, then i expect that they're informed when their comments isn't followed .... i expect an discussion..

and regarding the topic knowledge... i'm ranked at 5.(223.351 pts) position in ASP and Gary at the 20.(67.842 pts) position...

and santaclass is actually the only one that said something wrong in this thread!

but anyway... this is not about knowledge... you can't know everything...
this is about respect...


regards,

as already mentioned, i don't want to cleanup
it's somewhat rude to ask this over and over again...
like when my client isn't satisfied with my work and i ask "do you want to do my work?"

to see that i'm right, go here and download the zip file
http://www.anzwers.org/free/db97test/

inside there's am access97 DB and an asp script which uses jet4 to read the database...


anyway... i don't think that's how you want to deal with your most important resource - the experts - in future...
