Microsoft Access Problems: Corruption & Access Repair Services
PCA is frequently called upon when MS Access applications experience problems or are in need of repair
e.g. poor application performance, crashing, data and application corruption.
When dealing with MS Access problems or Access repairs, we know what to look for, and how best to apply the effective techniques
to get your MS Access database application up and running.
MS Access Problems: Limitations
MS Access has several built-in technical limitations that are inherent to the application
itself (independent of how well the application is designed). Expect to run into
MS Access problems (slow performance, corrupt database, application crashes, etc.) if your
MS application goes into the "Caution" or the "Stop" zones for any one of the following
|Size of DB
|DB Schema Design
MS Access applications are suitable for small groups e.g. 2-10 users over a LAN,
or 2-5 users over the Internet. If you push much beyond this, you'll more than likely
start running into problems, especially if you have a relatively complex set of
products, services, and business processes (all result in an increasingly complex
database schema), and particularly if your business needs require more advanced
types of Server-to-Client functionality, like database replication & synchronization.
MS Access Repair and Remedies
These are all too common consequences of "hitting the wall" with your office-grown
MS Access application, and it may be time to look seriously at either re-designing or repairing
your Access application, or migrating the application to one of Microsoft's more scalable
server platforms: MSDE or SQL Server. PCA helps customers make well-informed decisions
around tackling their Access problems, or for taking MS Access applications to the "next level" in a cost-effective manner.
For some of our MS Access customers, business is relatively small and static, and
the goal is to "Make the MS Access Problems Go Away" in the most cost-effective
manner possible. For others customers, business is continually evolving, the application
is a moving target, and it's critical that the solution support current business
needs, yet provide a stable path to accommodate growth. Regardless of your business
situation, it's important to understand the strengths and potential trade-offs of
the various solutions available on the Microsoft Business Platform.
MS Access Data Corruption and Access Repair
PCA can often help when an MS Access project isn't going well. PCA is very good
at identifying the root-cause and repairing MS Access problems around issues of corruption. Sometimes,
it's as simple as running the MS Access Repair and Compact utility; while other
times the right remedy requires more in-depth procedures like addressing MS Access
Database and/or MS Access Application design problems. We have the experience and
tools that go well beyond the MS Access Repair and Compact utility, to help our
Clients sort out their MS Access corruption problems, and provide the most cost-effective,
PCA's primary objective when repairing corrupt MS Access applications is helping our
clients determine the source of the MS Access problem, and making sure that the
MS Access corruption doesn't happen again.
