This database has been converted from a prior version of Microsoft Access by using the DAO Compact Database method instead of the Convert Database command on the Tools menu (Database Utilities submenu). This has left the database in a partially converted state.
If you have a copy of the database in its original format, use the Convert Database command on the Tools menu (Database Utilities submenu) to convert it. IF the original database is no longer available, create a new database and import your tables and queries to preserve your data. Your other database objects can’t be recovered.
• You cannot carry out this action at the present time.
• The instruction at “0x12345678" referenced memory at “0x90abcdef”. The memory could not be “written”.
• Microsoft Office Access has detected that this database is in an inconsistent state, and will attempt to recover the database. During this process, a backup copy of the database will be made and all recovered objects will be placed in a new database. Access will then open the new database. The names of objects that were not successfully recovered will be logged in the “Recovery Errors” table.
• Runtime error 3000 — Reserved Error (-1104)
• ‘databasename.mdb’ isn’t an index in this table. Look in the Indexes collection of the TableDef object to determine the valid index names.
