Database Corruption: It think it has been partially converted. HELP
Posted on 2004-08-19
For some reason, which I may guess at in a moment, is giving me an error message when I attempt to open it: "The database is an unexpected state. Microsoft Access can't open it." The message goes on to say that the database was converted from a prior database by using a "DAO CompactDatabase" instead of the Convert Dabase command and that it has been left in a partially converted state.
I can not open the database whatsoever and I did not attempt to convert the database. However, my network directory size limit was reached while I was working on the database. I may have attempted to compact the database with the directory max'ed out, but not sure. I also had my PC on its knees with several programs running including Lotus Notes and several ArcMap projects all at the same time, so I'm sure my computers memory resources were at a minimum.
Is there a way to recover my database or am I forced to go to a backup copy and lose several days work?
