    Repair Access database (Access 2000)

    HI!

    I'm in trouble. How can I repair Access Database. The database is protected by password.
    After entering the password i receive the error message:

    ..Do you want Microsoft Access to attempt to repair the database?
    after clicking yes, the result is next error message:
    Password is not valid.

    What to do?
    I have used special repair tool when the built in tool didn't help,
    But I cannot find it anywhere.

    Thanks for any help.

    The password firstly, are you entering the correct password, is it case sensitive, did you create it ?
    Will the database import into a new database ?
    Can you open the database with the shift key ?
    Can you reset the password to no password ?

    Thanks for the questions,

    Password is correct.
    The data don't import into new database.
    I cannot open the database with the shift key.
    I cannot reset the password.

    Every time I try something, the error messages are the same

    regards,
    Anu

    You may have a problem here with the MDW file.
    Messing with this could cause all kinds of problems, so I won't go along the route of trying to talk you through a remedy.
    Do a search on the Microsoft help site in ref to MDW or corrupt MDW.

    You'll find some good information there.
    Post back if you still have problems.
    I'm sure other members will chip in if we can't find a remedy.

    Alternatively, do a search for a download called "JETCOMP.EXE" this is a Microsoft repair utility.
    You must try it on a copy of your database first.
