Can't access old CATraxx database

Post by mdiaz0429 » Sat Aug 04, 2018 1:06 pm

I started using CAtraxx in 2009. I have an old database with the .MDB termination that was last accessed in 2010. I now have the last CATraxx released, version 9.5 and it will not allow me to accesss this database. When I try I get the following message:

"An error occurred: "DAODBEngine OpenDatabase failed" "The Microsoft Jet database engine stopped the process because you and another user are attempting to change the same data at the same time"

I am the only user and I am not logged in twice. If anyone know how to solve this proble I would be very thankful. I need access to that datbase to actually sell saome of the records I have on it so I can get some $$$ that I really need at this time in my life. Thanks in advance!
Regards,
Mario

Couple things to check.
Make sure the MDB file is not marked as read only or is on a read only drive.
With CATraxx closed, check to see if there is a corresponding LDB file in the same folder. If there is, delete it.

If you have MS Access you should be able to open the MDB and do a native Compact and Repair.

If none of this helps, I'm willing to take a look at the MDB and see if there's something I can do.

Let me know.

Thank you for your help. The MDB file is not "read only" and not on a read only drive. There is no LDB file in the same folder. I do not have MS Access. I tried using one of the free database programs and they could not access my MDB file at all. Please let me know how I can ge the MDB file to you and see if you can solve my problem. I really appreciate your help!
Thanks again!

Click right on the file and select SEND TO > COMPRESSED (ZIPPED) FOLDER
If the resulting zip file is less then 10MB send it directly to my at (removing the spaces):
doug is @ the record room . com

If it's bigger than 10MB send it via www.TransferNow.Net

Thanks,
