    Cant open mdb (Access 2002)

    Have deleted an *.mdb from a floppy. It has been recovered with an undelete utility, which works on all other files. But on trying to open this *.mdb, I get the error message
    <font face="Comic Sans MS"> "The Microsoft Jet database engine stopped the process because you and another user are attempting to change the same data at the same time. (Error 3197)" </font face=comic>
    How can I open this mdb? <img src=/S/scratch.gif border=0 alt=scratch width=25 height=29>

    Chances are the database is damaged. You can try the Jet compact utility from Microsoft (free). Sometimes it is able to repair a database.
    Another option is to create a blank new database and to try to import as many database objects from the problem database as possible.
