Hi all

I have ms access procedure for importing dbf files into ms access

But i face a problem with corrupted files

Is there any code to determine if DBF file is corrupted or not to make exception for it?

Manual guide….

Try opening the .dbf file in Excel or other program that supports opening the .dbf format.

Once opened in Excel you should be able to view the file, delete any "bad data", and resave to a new name (with the .dbf extension).

Also possible to create a new table with the structure of the old table, append records from the old to the new. May salvage records until the corruption is encountered.

Ultimate solution is directed to severe corruption in .dbf files https://dbf.recoverytoolbox.com/ Recovery Toolbox for DBF
