    It's highly likely that you have a corrupted database file. If you can open
    the db in Access, use the Compact and Repair option under Tools. If you
    can't, see if anyone in the microsoft.public.access group can help.

    You didn't show us the code that produced this error, but if I had to guess,
    I would say you are using the wrong provider in your connection string. Go
    to to see the correct connection string for
    connecting to an Access 2007 file.

    Seems your Jet engine is not up to it.

    Trust M$, that possibly there is no newer engine, Bob will know.

    It's a new version of Jet that's completely divorced from the old one ...
