Tables in MS Access database are the primary storage components to store user's records. While this database component is easy to open, there are possibilities that when you attempt to open the tables, an error message pops up. This error message does not allow you to access any records saved in the tables. In such situations, an ideal way is to restore the tables from an updated backup. But if in case, no backup is available or backup falls short to restore the records, then you will need to use advanced access repair software.

As a practical example, you encounter any of the below error messages when you attempt to view records saved in Finance table:

“Error 3800: AOIndex is not an index in this table.”
“Run-Time Error '3058' Index or
Primary key cannot contain a null value”

You encounter the same error message every time you attempt to open the Finance table. Furthermore, the data stored in the Finance table becomes inaccessible after the above error message appears.


The above error message primarily occurs due to damage or corruption of index in system table.

1.You will need to select Database utilities on the Tools menu, and then click Compact and Repair Database.

3.Lastly, you will need to select a correct folder location for the new file in the ‘Compact Database Into’ dialog box, type a unique name for the file, and then click on Save.

But, if in case the above utility falls short to resolve your problem, access repair software comes to rescue.
