    Jet Database Engine Stopped (2000)

    I have a client who has a db on a server that more than one person can use at a time. They lost connectivity somehow and now on any pc that you try and open the db, after typing in the login name and password you get the following message "The Microsoft Jet database engine stopped the process because you and another user are attempting to change the same data at the same time." Can't get past that message to get into db to even try and repair. Any suggestions. Of course they don't have a good backup.

    At worst, I read somewhere that there are services that can recreate the corrupted db.

    Help!

    Look for an ldb file on the server. If it's there, it shouldn't be, so delete it. Then see if you can open the database.

    I had already deleted it, and tried copying the db and renaming.

    OK - not a good sign, but you could try importing everything into a new database. Sometimes that will work when you can't get into a corrupt database. However the error you are getting doesn't really sound like a corruption problem - it sounds like a locking problem. Is is possible that you have an application on the server that is using it? There are some tools available from Microsoft that will let you see who has the database open that you might want to investigate. Check out these two knowledge base articles:
    Q208778 - Introduction to .ldb files
    There is also an article Q199252 which I haven't been able to bring up that is titled " ACC2000: Determining Which User Has Opened Database Exclusively (Q199252)" that should give you some added clues.
    Good luck - hope some of this helps you.
