repairing .mdb file
recently bumped across a problem and after googling it alot, i decided to share it with AO. I recovered an accedently deleted database (Microsoft Access .mdb file) by using a third party tool GET DATA BACK. I was able to rcover it completely, but when i tried to open the recovered file, it said "unrecognised format". I tried to fix it with the help of bulit in compact and repair utility in MS Access but the problem presisted. I tried to fix it through JET utils, but still the problem is there. I have completely recoverd the database file but i am unable to open it. Any guidance for that would be appreciated.
My OS is Windows XP professional and the filesystem is FAT 32.
