Have you ever had an Access database crash, and then not open again?
A database is said to be “corrupted” when a part of its data or functionality is lost. When an ACCESS database is corrupted, you may get several error messages while doing the common operations in ACCESS. For example, while opening and closing the database, while running forms or queries, while updating and saving records, or while scrolling through records. This is the indication that a part of your database is corrupted.
There are many reasons why this data or functionality corruption may occur.
