    query won't open (access 97 sr2)

    I am still working with Access 97(I know) I have an append query that won't run and won't even open in design view so I can see what it is really doing in both cases the hour glass just sits there. The database also will not compact. This was working fine until 1 week ago and then it just stopped working. Any ideas?
    Thanks

    Try the following:
    - Create a blank new database.
    - Try to import all database objects from the problem database into the new one.
    - If you can import the problem query, see if you can open it in design view and run it.

    You also may want to try JetComp to compact/repair the database (you can download it from Microsoft site, just do a search). Sometimes it will fix problems the internal Access97 Compact/Repair won't fix.
