database has a problem
« on: December 17, 2017, 03:27:38 PM »
I'm a database administrator and today I've seen following - The Microsoft Jet Database Engine cannot open the file. I don't know what to use for solving it. My friend suggested this community; I hope here, someone could assist me.

I honestly doubt anyone here can help you. We don't deal with the Jet engine under any circumstances (we have no support in SMF for anything other than MySQL, PostgreSQL or SQLite), but if the Jet engine can't open a file, the user either doesn't have permission to access the file, or the file is corrupted; usually the latter in my experience.
Don’t try to tell me that some power can corrupt a person. You haven’t had enough to know what it’s like.
