This discussion could go on for days (month? a semester at least?) but data is any piece of information you want to capture and save. a name. an address. a phone number. (actually they are examples of pieces of data - and whether you capture and save them or not they are still pieces of data). data "forms" a database when you save it (in the dataabase).

the database usually has tables representing related pieces of infomation.

Example:
the CLIENT table may have the following fields:
Client Number
Client Name
Address
Phone
Contact name
etc., etc.

the ACCOUNTS_RECEIVABLE table may have
Client Number
Invoice Number
Invoice Date
Invoice amount
etc., etc.

Notice how the CLIENTS table is "related" to the ACCOUNTS_RECEIVABLE table by the Client Number - hence the term you may have heard RELATIONAL database.

any more in depth please ask.

I need to perform access database repair


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

Access database 2003 problem with a copy of database file. How to fix?


You say corrupt, in what way exactly? Do you get any specific error numbers/messages?

Have you tried Access repair program? Compact and Repair. If not, use it. But ensure that you made a backup, it is necessary because all the recovery tips can make the damage even worse.

Also try Jet Compact Utility. This tool created by Microsoft and it is much like Compact and Repair, but more successful in repairing.

If no one of above advice helps, then perhaps you need more powerful solution. In this case try to run a good third-party. I would recommend Recovery Toolbox for Access. It must help you. https://access.recoverytoolbox.com/

MS Access database recovery


Have you tried creating a NEW MDB, and then IMPORTING the objects from the Crashed/Corrupted MDB?

This will SOMETIMES serve to rescue most if not all of the corrupted entities .

Or:
You can try:
eRepair Access is a powerful Access database recovery solution for damaged *.mdb and *.accdb files created in Access 2000 and above. Having such a tool at hand immediately after a database file corruption incident may save you a great deal of time, nerve and, of course, an ample amount of money that would otherwise be paid to third-party recovery services. With eRepair Access, you don't need to depend on anyone and entrust your Access data (often quite sensitive) into somebody else's hands. You don't have to wait. You don't have to call it a day knowing that the damaged Access file will not be restored (if at all) until tomorrow. With eRepair Access, you can be back in the game within minutes!

I want to learn that how can i connect my HTML page with my DATABASE created in MS ACCESS so that i can fill my table in HTML page directly-


1. You can use Pages option in MS Access. The page in MS Access is the web page in MS Access which allows you to access database in MS Access database.

2. You can use MS Office Front Page application and use the Form builder and connect your database in that.

3. You can also use Google Apps Business Solution for this however the database will not remain in MS Access but will remain in Docs online.

4. You can use .net application developer for this as well but needs expertise in that.

Creation of a dynamic web page


Okay, you can't do that with just Office 2003 professional. You'll need to install and configure the dotnet framework on your machine first, and then you could use infopath to create forms to work with, say, something like MS Sharepoint. You could use MS Frontpage to create an online form and link it with an Access database, but you will not need the dot net framework for that. It's easy and Frontpage is pretty intuitive.

Here are the basic instructions for using MS Frontpage: http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/frontpage/HP052812481033.aspx

You will also need webspace or a webhost that will support Microsoft ASP web hosting.

If you haven't done this before, it may be easier to get a professional do it for you, using either Microsoft or PHP/MySQL based technologies. It will certainly be time efficient.

Connecting html form to Ms-access data base


If, as I suspect, this is for a web form, then it effectively can't be done on a "proper" web server. This is because you cannot install MS Office on an MS server OS (e.g. Server 2003). You need to use MS SQL Server or MySQL instead. If this is for very limited use (i.e. only a few clients at a time), you can use XP running IIS but this is really not a good idea. The sedurity implications don't bear thinking about :) Linking a web page to Access can probably be done using ASP (never even thought of trying it - anyone else here know for sure?) If you are using a Linux web server then it's totally out of the question. Use Webmin or PHPMySQL to set up a MySQL database & PHP to code the linkage between the page and the DB. There are plenty of tools out there that will automate this for you, some of them Open Source and therefore free to acquire.
