Unless you like playing with fire, back up your old databases before doing the repair and compaction routine. If you do a compaction or repair on a non-open database, Access will prompt you for a name for the output. This is a form of backup, but since it’s not to an external source such as a CDR disk, it’s not as foolproof as a real backup. Tip In some cases, the repair facility will fail to fix a corrupted database. Occasionally, you can work around this failure by creating a new database container and then importing the objects from the old corrupted database container into the new one.

8 shows the Employees form opened in design view. You also can dynamically switch views by clicking on the View button in the main Access toolbar, or from the View menu. 8. Try switching back and forth from design to normal view using the View toolbar button until you get a feel for it. This is an important switch that you’ll use quite a bit when designing certain Access objects—especially forms. 8 Design view is the mode you use to manipulate the object’s design rather than the underlying data.

14 presents problems in data selection and manipulation, especially as the numbers of employees grow. It is not in the first or any normal form. While Access can handle such violations fairly gracefully when departments hold three or four people, it will fall apart fast when the numbers get into the hundreds, thousands, or even higher. 14 is to have a row for each distinct value in the Employees field. That is, you’d not have two employees in the Employees field, but a single entry for each field.
