    Unanswered: Getting the error "The database needs to be repaired or isn't a database file"

    I have a database where I have split it into a front end mdb linking to another mdb for the backend both on a network server. There are about 20 to 30 users in it. I've gotten this error 4 times today when people have tried to open the mdb. I keep getting everyone out and then repairing and then once everyone gets back in, it works for a while then gets corrupted again. Any thoughts on why this is happening.

    Almost certainly due to users sharing the same copy of the front end. Each user should have a copy on their PC.
