MDB Checker utility?
Greetings all. I have a 40 meg mapfile (compressed down to 4KB) which neither my version of Zmud (7.21) nor Zmapper (1.30b) can read anymore.

I first installed zMapper and loaded up my recent map file, with no problems. I went into zMud and checked the plugins list but zMap wasn't there. I shut down zMap, ran it again a few times but it still wasn't recognized in the plugin list. I checked to make sure my versions were up-to-date (which they were). After a few more tries, the zMap plugin was recognized but now my mapfile won't load in zMap (or zmud)

I was wondering if there was some trick or utility in zMapper to "clean up" whatever is broken within my MDB file so it could be re-loaded. Would much love to save my work .... but I understand with beta software that errors will happen.

I'm running Win XP Service Pack 2, if that matters at all. Thanks for your time.

There is zsConvert.exe which you could give a whirl (not sure if it will do anything).

A pure guess would that it might be something with SQLite vs MDB.

Regardless what you do, save the mag somewhere as a backup.

No, zsConvert just converts the old .MAP files into the .MDB database format. If you go to the page there is a utility somewhere on the page called the MDAC Repair program from Microsoft that will repair and compress a MDB database. This is the same as the function within zMapper itself in the File>Compress menu option.

I managed to recover my db by using zone copy with a new map and that had a single zone that didnt share any of the imported names.
