Hi,

Before you do that try creating a new database and then importing the objects from the corrupt db.  I've found this works a lot of times.

'Best' implies you have a choice.
You don't.

There is only one utility available once you have tried the 'Compact & Repair' and 'import into new database'
JetComp ...

After that it's using a data recovery company.

If Wayne can't fix it ... probably cannot be fixed.

peter57r:  I went to your URL and Access 2003 was not mentioned.  Access 2000, and Access2002 as well as Office 2002, but not Access 2003.  Oversight maybe?

Hi,

I used that service some years back on behalf of one of my clients and was pleased with the results.  Hard disk crashed as I recall.

Regards,

Bill

gRay ... JetComp still works on A2003, but that's it.

You have been given information on all the options that are available.  If no of them fixed your database that's tough, but corruption, by its nature is unpredictable.

Sounds like you are faced with going back to your last backup.

Sounds like you got an answer to your question "What is best third-party software can solve courpted database file ".  Sorry it didn't fix your problem, though.

I believe you got your answer - the very nature of software is such that when corrupted, may often result in the permanent loss of any utility or data contained therein.  I thought http:#a35712841 was appropriate.  You never commented.
