Description cag2123 2009-02-24 22:01:30 UTC
I have been working on this project for several years by putting data into a
table and form for article and book tracking.  I was working until last night
without trouble but this morning I went to open the project and received this
message in an error dialog box. " Base: X The connection to the
database "arts and studies" could not be established.

Could not find "F:/mydatabase and spreadsheet files \database\cmplete2.mdb." 

I have not been using this file at all but I did extract some of the data from
it several months ago. It had been working fine until last night and the file is
an odb file now not a mdb.  In fact I had to start from scratch and input over
500 files over again because the Access files did not properly convert to this

The F drive holds my external disk drive files and I thought it was getting
tired but when I tried to open other odt or odb files they came open without
trouble. Only this one seems to not be accessible from there or my C:/ root
drive either. I have a copy of this file on my on board hard drive and it does
the same thing as the one on F:drive. So it is not the hardware that is causing
this strange message.

I thought perhaps an updated version of the engine was needed but when I
installed the latest 3.0 the problem is still there.

When I try to open a table forms or queries in this file only they do not open
but given this error message and nothing works. I have a lot of time and energy
wrapped up in this project and do not want to see it trashed. Is there a limit
on the number of files one database can hold and I have exceeded this amount? Or
is the problem with a corrupted script somewhere? I am not a programmer and do
not do the scripts well at all so please be simple for simple minded people.
Thank you Charlotte Grantham
