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/

"The Microsoft Jet Database Engine cannot open the file '(unknown)'"There are several causes for this error message:

using (which is usually IUSR) does not have the correct Windows NT
permissions for a file-based database or for the folder that contains
- The file and the data source name are marked as Exclusive.
- Another process or user has the Access database open.
error may be caused by a delegation issue. Check the authentication
method (Basic versus NTLM), if any. If the connection string uses the
Universal Naming Convention (UNC), try to use Basic authentication or
an absolute path such as C:\Mydata\Data.mdb. This problem can occur
even if the UNC points to a resource that is local to the IIS computer.
error may also occur when you access a local Microsoft Access database
that is linked to a table where the table is in an Access database on a
- Check the permissions on the file and the folder. Make sure
that you have the ability to create and/or destroy any temporary files.
Temporary files are usually created in the same folder as the database,
but the file may also be created in other folders such as the WINNT
folder. For additional information about how to identify which folder
does not have the correct permissions and how to configure temporary
files, click the following article number to view the article in the
Microsoft Knowledge Base:

If you use a network path to the database (UNC or mapped drive), check the permissions on the share, the file, and the folder.
- Verify that the file and the data source name (DSN) are not marked as Exclusive.
"other user" may be Microsoft Visual InterDev. Close any Visual
InterDev projects that contain a data connection to the database.
- Simplify. Use a System DSN that uses a local drive letter. If necessary, move the database to the local drive to test.

Microsoft access form problem
In the Design view for your form element (eg textbox), go to the Data Tab. Look at the options for:
Input Mask, Validation Rule and Validation Text. You can use any combination of these to force a user to enter something in the field. If you just want to check that the contents of the element has a non-zero length, then you can write an event (Events tab) to check the length of the values entered. If 0, then throw a message box and re-focus the cursor on the textbox.
