MS Access 2000 corrupt's databases

Hello.

We have about 20 users in our Access databases. Sometime databases
corrupts and are not available. I have to correct them. It is not
nice, because you have to ask every user to close database, because
other wise correcting is not possible.
We have 100 Mt Cat 5 ethernet and some of the users use database via
Citrix servers.
Why databases corrupts and is there anything I can do to this problem?

There are some things that can be done to minimize the problem. First, make 
sure the have the most current updates and service packs for Office, MDAC, 
Jet, and your operating systems. These are free downloads from Microsoft's 
web site. Next, make sure each local user has a front-end file on their 
computer, with a back-end file containing just the tables of data as a 
back-end on a network share. Also, make sure the users always close Access 
properly before they exit a session or shut down their computers.

For more information on preventing corruption, you will find some good tips 
here.

How to corrupt a MS Access database file in a 'normal' way?
Here is the situation: I wrote a VB programm, which stores all the information in a single Access database file using jet engine. It worked well, however one of my customs reported that there was some problems with this programm. I checked, the log files showed that the database was corrupted. The customer told me that there no 'illegal' operation such as pull out the plug, or kill the programm via task manager... So is there any possible normal operation which could corrupt the database? such as 'Weird characters' I guess? (The custom is from Italy, is there any special Italian chars could do this?) Of course it is possible that there are some bugs in the programm, which possibly caused a error may corrupt the database file, but still, how? The program wasn't stopped violently anyway ... Anyone could give some idea about this? Since it is rather hard to talk to Italians... So I can not completely investigate 'what they did about the program'... I have to check the program and potential operations which may corrupt the database. Thanks a lot. shineofleo wrote: > The customer told me that there no 'illegal' operation such as pull out > the plug, or kill the programm via task manager... > Of course it is possible that there are some bugs in the programm, > which possibly caused a error may corrupt the database file, but still, > how?

Do you know? If so, please answer this post. Thanks. I think it comes down to semantics. "Licensed" vs "Loaded". No you can't create an app that will run on a PC with nothing loaded. Yes you can create an app that will run on a PC where nobody's paid the fee to run MS Access. You still have to install something on that PC, however. What it is is a freebie version of MS Access that only runs applications - doesn't allow anybody to develop an app. You develop the app on your PC, which has MS Access installed. Then somebody installs the freebie ("Runtime Access") on somebody's PC and they can run the app you developed without having to pay any money to anybody. -- PeteCresswell Sue, If Access isn't present, some version of it must be installed to run an Access database.

I think you're going to have to expand a little bit more in your question here, as is not 100% quite clear what you're trying to do. You might want to make a little bit of a distinction between MS access, the development system that allows you to write code, build forms, and build reports, and that of the database engine that you choose to use with MS access. When you build an application MS access, you then choose your database engine, that might be oracle, SQL server, or perhaps more often leave the default jet database. So when you say make a client access application, are you talking about a piece of software that you plan to install and each computer? The fact that your introducing the issue of java further complicates your question. Perhaps your question is simply you have some java code running on a server, and with to open a mdb file (an access database file). In this situation you're not really using MS access at all here (you using what is called the jet database engine to read that mdb file). For all the trouble in this type of sce...

request for explanation on access an database in ms access
This is the code that I found on the internet for accessing an ms access database: import java.sql.*; class Test { public static void main(String[] args) { try { Class.forName("sun.jdbc.odbc.JdbcOdbcDriver"); // set this to a MS Access DB you have on your machine String filename = "d:/java/mdbTEST.mdb"; String database = "jdbc:odbc:Driver={Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb)};DBQ="; database+= filename.trim() + ";DriverID=22;READONLY=true}"; // add on to the end // now we can get the connection from the DriverManager Connection con = DriverManager.getConnection( database ,"",""); } catch (Exception e) { System.out.println("Error: " + e); } } } What I don't understand is the declaration of database. What I did was putting the database in the same dir as the sourcecode and use "jdbc:odbc:CafeJolt.mdb". But this doesn't work. And the above code does, why is that??? Actually it's not Java question. It's ODBC question. You have to have ODBC connection. Depending of Windows it's usually something like this (for my Windows 2000): Start->Sttings->Control Panel->Administartive Tools->Data Sources(ODBC)-> User DSN -> [Add]-> Driver to Microsoft Access(*.mdb) === And here, finally you can choose file name. ...

Accessing a MS Access database across two servers
Hi The technical support guys at my company have set up my system so that the server containing the MS Access database is on one server, while the pages that should access the database are on another server. When the pages and database are on the same server, I usually just connect through ODBC.

Best way to access a remote MS ACCESS database
What is the best way, via the internet, to access a remote Microsoft Access database? I was thinking of using VPN, but I thought that I would check here to see if there is a better way. Any suggestions? Thanks Do you mean remotely controlling an Access database, or linking tables over the internet? The first is doable, the second is a recipe for disaster. Remote Control: If your remote OS is Windows XP, you can use Remote Desktop (although only 1 person can access the PC at a time; this will change in the upcoming Service Pack for XP, but that may not help you now). Otherwise, GoToMyPC offers similar services, as does Terminal Server (a component of a Windows Server machine), PCAnywhere, et al. Linking to remote tables: You will almost certainly encounter severe problems with corruption, and your performance will almost certainly be so poor as to be unworkable. I attempted this once, with a web server in Canada and my machine in Augusta, GA. Even tiny data requests on a very well optimized data structure took waaaay too long to process ... it's simply not workable, IMO. Other alternatives would be covert the app to a web-based and place your data on a web server. Access/Jet isn't really designed for those workloads, but running a small site with minimal transactions and users can be done. Otherwsie, consider switching to a more robust data platform like MySQL, SQL Server, etc. -- Scott McDaniel CS Computer Software Visual Bas...

How to add records with 'Autonumber' property to a MS Access database using LabVIEW?
I am trying to write to a MS Access database. Everything works fine as long as I add data to all records at the same time. The database I am using have two tables (just for testing) with a 'one-to-many' relationship between the two. They both have a PrimaryKey with the data type 'AutoNumber'. From what I understand those numbers should be automatically generated when new data is written to the DB. I can't get that to work with LabVIEW. I am using the function 'DB Tools Insert Data.vi'.

Accessing 2 tables having same name but different databases ms-access
Hi, I have an application with MS-Access as backend and JSP/ tomcat as frontend/webserver. For getting better response time(as access is very slow compared to other RDBMS's), I have split the main DB into two DB's on different disks on my server for better performance.I have kept the table names same but changed the DB names. How do I access tables from both the DB's? This is what I have done; I made different connection to the respective DB's i.e. con and con2. When I want to access data, I am using 2 result sets for retriving data from the tables, but getting no result. Here is my code: rs2_1=stmt2_1.executeQuery("select * from Requests where Status='Released' AND LoginName='"+login+"' order by Req_No"); rs=stmt.executeQuery("select * from Requests where Status='Released' AND LoginName='"+login+"' AND Req_No> 5500 order by Req_No"); So, rs & stmt are for latest records and rs2_1 & stmt2_1 correspond the records from older DB. I think, I'm forgetting some small thing but cant get it. Please advice. What do you mean "no result"? Does "next()" return false for both rs2_1 an= d rs? If you're really trying to improve response time, you should probably be ru= nning the two queries in separate threads ... but as you acknowledge, Acces= s may not have as high performance as other RDBMSs. You would also see rel= iability adv...
