MS Access Data Corruption Symptoms

Microsoft Access Data Corruption happens more commonly than you may think. Corruption can be caused by many factors. The most typical are; Not exiting MS Access correctly, or terminating the program (i.e rebooting if the system hangs), System failure (when your computer crashes), or general power failure (caused by a power cut). Some cases are more complex and require analysis by experienced technicians.
