Access 2000: can't open database

By larry ·
When trying to open a Access 2000 database application from a floppy disk I get the error message: 'unrecognized database format "file name.mdb" I have tried to compact and repair the database but I get the same message. I think that the databaseis corupted. How do I recover the database?

If the database file is truly corupted you can't open it. Sorry! It can only be restored from a working backup!

All the evidence I have points to a corupted file. We will use a backup next time. Thanks.
