    Unanswered: Help! Unrecognized Database Format:

    Hi all,

    I have a file that when I click to open the database I get: Unrecognized Database Format: My documents\EnvivaPM.mdb.

    I tried to compact and repair, but with no luck. I also tried to create a new DB and import tables/forms/queries, but again no luck.

    Does any one have any suggestions on how I can recover this database?

    Thanks a Million!!! Chuck

    If you cannot open the database, how did you go about compacting and repairing it?
    Hope this helps!

    The problem with making anything foolproof...is that fools are so darn ingenious!

    Open Access and select Compact and Repair, Then it asks you to select a file.
