How to fix the error from .mdb file?
Thank you for taking the time to report an issue.
What's wrong... Please write below.
What are my options for accessing this DB from the Linux side? Can I read from the .mdb file directly with some module? Can I use DBD::ODBC to access the DB across the network?
This is a Very old database system which suddenly my company wants to revive. Is there a way I can get into the database and see the objects and tables? I have tried importing the database into SQL and no luck, same error.
A Excel file( .xls ) is created by another program and that file's absolute location is embedded in an .mdb file. The data from the Excel file is used to generate attendance sheets using the .mdb file and a "trial" version of Access.
The software that creates the Excel file was upgraded and the new software is in a different location that previously. The reportthat creates the Excel file works in the new location, but the location where the file is saved is under the new software's directory.
I would like to modify the location of the Excel file that is in the .mdb file to point to the new location.
How do I do this?
It appears that the computer this .mdb file is on only has a "trial" version of Access. However, I can use Access on another machine to modify the file location in the .mdb file if necessary.
Between this is running on Windows XP. Other machine with Access is running Windows 7.
We've updated the shortcuts that point to the database itself, but when we attempt to log in to the database, it gives the error "Runtime error "-2147467259 (8000 4005)" and then says"J:\blah\database backend\database.mdb" is not a valid path" - is there anyway to update where the passwords file should be?
"C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\OFFICE11\MSACCESS.EXE" "S:\YourSystem.mdb" /WRKGRP "S:\YourWorkgroup.mdw"
or open my .mdb file directly.
When I open my .mdb file using different user account in Windows, it uses default workgroup information file, and no security is applied.
but I can easily bypass multi-user security by deleting workgroup information file. I think I am missing something here.
I guess I have to distribute the shortcut among users. How should I secure .mdw and .mdb file in system level,
Is it possible through Windows in the command line, to output an MDB file to a text file? If it's possible, then, I can put that command in a batch program and allow the users to easily do the export for many MDB files.
For example, at the command line:
MDBTOOLS <filename.mdb> <outputfile.txt>
If the file is open by another user, my machine apparently does not open it (Access does not show up in Task Manager) but it adds my machine name to the open LDB file!
I have already tried dis-associating MDB with Access, then shutting down, and then re-associating the MDB file types with Access. It did not solve the matter.
The file is in Access 2003: I just got a new system running Windows 7 and Office 2010 today. This same issue came up previously with a co-worker with her Windows XP-Pro machine suddenly stopped opening MDBs that someone else had open unless Access was started first.
I found the orig code on the net, tried manipulating it for my database but I keep getting run time error 3024 could not find file 'mydbfile.mdb'
My file is there, and microsoft dao 3.6 object library has already been checked under my references.
I am using excel and access 2007 (although I saved my database file as .mdb and my excel as .xlsm since I need userforms for my excel, because the multiple users cannotalso manipulate the excel sheets manually because data will be entered from the userforms only).
