Database failure / No Reference Results / Cannot Save Results

Unfortunately your MDAC (database access) installation has been damaged. Sadly it is very sensible and prone to such mishaps as it is not protected by Windows' protection system.

  • Please use MDAC component checker to check that your MDAC install is OK:

    MDAC Checker

  • If this has not fixed it, try registering the Jet/Access libs manually by typing in a console/command prompt:

    regsvr32 msjetoledb40.dll

  • Please see this good explanation from Microsoft*'s own forums:

    MDAC Fix

    OK, how to repair a copy of MDAC 2.8 on WinXP with SP2 installed:
