    Does your database file end in .mde instead of .mdb?

    There went my first good idea. Try moving the database file to another
    computer will Access on it. If you can get it to work there, then the problem
    is with your computer's install of Office or Access. If it's still acting up
    at the other computer, then it could be a corrupt database file.

    I did try to open it on a different computer since this database is on a
    shared drive & still showing the same error message. I also have Office 2003
    re installed in my PC but yes it does give me the same error message. You
    think it's a corrupted database? What's your suggestion to correct it? Thanks
