I use a 2002-2003 version of an MS Access database.  All of the current data is on a database that consists only of talbes where the replicable property is greyed out.

I am interested in exporting the data to a new database that has replicable tables without having to recreate the structure manually.

Have you tried to create a new database and use the import wizard.  Select the option for structure only.  See if that will do it for you.

In Access 2010, the option is definition only, but I think in 2003 it was structure only.

When I import the definition only, the resulting table is still not replicable.

Would you mind posting a copy of your source db, so that I can test it on my system.  If you have the capability remove any data from the table.  I'll see if I can find a good solution for you.

There are commercial tools for recovering Access Databases, but if you have a copy of Access 2007, it is a champ at recovering corrupted databases.

Follow t hungate's directions
