    Can't open mdb file

    I have a database in mdb format that will not open. When I try to open the file I get an error:
    "The Microsoft Access database engine stopped the process because you and another user are attempting to change data at the same time"

    I was the only user accessing the database and this occurred after a compact/repair.

    Any ideas on how to get the db working again?

    Can you check if there is anything locking the file, you may use process explorer tool.

    The repair method attempts to recover only the tables, indexes and queries in the database. Do not attempt to repair damaged forms, reports, macros and modules. Before executing the Compact and Repair tool, please ensure the following condition:

    1. Do not open Access database must closed
    2. Sufficient storage space available - minimum double in size of your Access database on that Disk.
    3. Close the .mdb file related to .ldb file before you delete the .ldb file.
    4. Then Run the Compact and Repair tool

    As ultimate solution apply professional software for unable to open and crashed .mdb files http://www.mdb.openfiletool.com/ MDB Open File Tool

    .ldb file palys an important role in the multiuser scheme and it is used to determine that which records are locked in the shared database and by whom. You can check the *.ldb file if you are not in the database. If *.ldb file still exists then, delete the file if you have the admin rights. If you do not have the admin rights then ask the IT department to delete the file for you.

    You must try JetComp.exe once to repair Access database. It's a freeware utility provided by Microsoft. For more information about JetComp.exe and how to use it, you can read this blog post: Repair Access Database with Compact and Repair Utility | N. Sem's Blog

    There're few other solutions also available in this blog post which can help you repair Access database. I hope this will help you.
