    Unanswered: database is not opening and shows size as 1 kbR

    Our company's running software has Access database backend. Today the software couldnot open the database and when I checked the database, that was not opening. Also the database size shows as 1kb. Its size was around 29Mb. I didnt back up the database for last one month and I am in deep trouble. Please help anyone...

    Thanking you in advance.

    dust off the CV is probably the best suggestion I can make, sad to relate

    have a look around the various user computers to see if the have a db called dbx, where x is a number

    have a look in the same directory as the back end was stored likewise

    after that I'm out of ideas, and I suspect your are stuffed with a capital F
    I'd rather be riding on the Tiger 800 or the Norton
