Database corruption is not a very uncommon behavior that is usually marked by generation of some error messages, access denials to the database objects, deletion of records in any database table etc. It can occur because of several reasons, such as occurrence of crashes in between a write operation, too many users trying to access the database at the same time, power surges etc. Microsoft Access which has a support for Microsoft’s Visual Basic for Applications (or VBA) programming language is also prone to corruption. For proper functioning of the operating system, it is necessary to load all the components of Visual Basic. If your system is unable to load all its components into the memory, the database may become corrupt. In order to recover your Access database from any case of corruption, you may be required to go for Access repair through a third party recovery software.  

For instance, when you try to open your MS Access 2000 database file, the Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) projects may not load.


When the loading process takes place, the VBA reads the ‘Project’ stream to load the required modules into memory. If the ‘Project’ stream is larger than a particular size, the loading process is aborted and an error occurs.

This may render your database corrupt and you may not be able to access your important data stored in the database file. This may require you to perform Access repair through a backup. If you do not have an updated backup, you should follow the below mentioned resolution steps.


You should install the latest service pack for Microsoft Access 2000 database.

If the above resolution fails to solve the problem, you may get into a serious trouble as your database file may become corrupt. In such situations, to repair Access file, you should take help of reliable database recovery software. These software employ safe recovery mechanisms and can easily recover all your database objects including tables, views, stored procedures, user defined functions etc.
