I have a dvd library list of my movies on a microsoft access 2003 file. Have opened it many times and added new movies to it. Ran some errands today and when i got back and tried to open it back up to add a new movie, it wouldn't open.

System may have 'lost' it's filetype association for 'mdb' files, so if you try to open the file direct from Explorer, Windows doesn't know what program to use. in such cases, you need to either restore the association or open Access first then open the file from there.

If that's not the problem, please post any error messages you are getting (if any) when you try to open it.

Oh, and your problem doesn't belong in the Networking forum. The Software->Office forum would have been more appropriate don't you think?
