    Angry Microsoft Access - unrecognised database format

    Hope this is appropriete forum. I have office 2010 pro plus and and have come from 2003. i have an Access database that is not working, says when opened "unrecognised database format". That is as far as i can get to. I know there is still data in there cause it is 1.5 mb in size. i've tried to open in forms as well, but still no go.

    even if i can get to the data and cut and paste to another database.

    I dont have Access 2010 but in earlier versions you could go to the Tools Menu and select Database Utilities, from there click Compact and Repair Database.
    When presented with the dialog box Database to Compact From, find your database file and click Compact.

    If that doesn't work or it is no longer an option, do a search for programs like Access Recovery, and try to repair it with a third party tool. I haven't tried any of the thrid party tools so I wont guarentee how they work, but they are an option
