I was working with my main .mdb file, and as luck would have it, Access up and crashed. This does happen every so often, as is true with most software including Microsoft products, but this was a very bad loss.

Upon trying to reopen the file and recover what I have since my last save, I get the following error message:

The Microsoft Jet database engine could not find the object 'MSysDb'. Make sure the object exists and that you spell its name and the path name correctly.

There was no object named MSysDb in my system, so I am assuming it is an Access feature. Other backups I have work just fine...only the file which crashed gives me this error.

It is possible to spend a day recovering lost work, but if there is anyway I could recover my lost file and sidestep this error message, I would be very appreciative.

Allen,
I've had that happen to me a few times.
Only once I could not recover and had to get the previous night backup, fortunately, it happened in the morning and I lost very little.
Normally when this happens, I make a new mdb file and import the data from the old one. This became a lot easier when a placed the tables on a different file from the rest.
Give it a try. Good luck
