Microsoft Access is one of the simplest Database Management System available to the users today. Its integration with other Microsoft products also makes it more popular and enjoyable-to-use. In an Access database, tables play a major role and are known as the 'building blocks'. Other objects of Access database remain highly dependent on tables, and thus they should be designed carefully. However, while using Microsoft Access you might come across table corruption issues. Such situations might prompt Access to behave in an unusual manner while you perform any task related to an affected database. Though, you can attempt to settle minor issues by relying on Compact and Repair utility, it might not always yield good results. The best and ideal way to fix Access database corruption is using a third-party Access repair tool.
Consider a scenario, wherein, you have an Access 2000 database, and you try to export a table and receive the following error message:
"The Microsoft Jet Database Engine could not find the Object ". Make sure the object exists and that you spelled its name correctly."
When you click OK, another error message appears which goes like:
"An error occurred trying to export the data from table 'tablename'. The data was not exported."
The above error message is generated when a table has a self-join and Memo fields, and has referential integrity enforced. Due to the referential integrity checks, the table becomes corrupt and you get the above-stated error message.
Table corruption can affect other components of an Access database. Thus, to eliminate corruption, you can consider the following Access database repair steps:
• You can change the Memo fields to Text fields or move the Memo fields into another table, then you can use 1:1 relationship
• If you detect severe corruption in the database table, then the ideal way to tackle the situation is using a professional Access repair application.
Such tools address all types of Access database corruption and repair access databases efficiently. Besides this, being read-only they do not even modify or alter any data stored in an affected Access database.
