Are you suffering from the problems of damaged, inaccessible or corrupt .mdb or .accdb database files? There are several unexpected reasons to corrupt these files like virus infection, software crash or malfunctioning, dirty shutdown of PC, corruption in storage drive and even more. When you access damaged or corrupt ACCDB or MDB files, you may have some errors like –

    - Database format not recognized
    - The database is not a database file or needs recovery
    - Microsoft Jet engine failed to locate the database object
