Hello there,

I have recently been sent a terminology file as part of a project. The file is an .mdb file, so I tried to open it with Multiterm. I received the following error message: "The microsoft Jet
database cannot find the input table or query 'mtCatalogObjects'. Make sure
it exists and that its name is spelled correctly". I could only find one other case of anyone having this problem (on Google) but I could not find a solution.

I'm using Multiterm 2007, 7.5.0.444 (build 448).

Is there another way I can access the terminology besides Multiterm?

Any help greatly appreciated.

mtCatalogObjects ... Mar 21, 2009

The file is an .mdb file, so I tried to open it with Multiterm. I received the following error message: "The microsoft Jet database cannot find the input table or query 'mtCatalogObjects'.

hmmm... there's indeed a mtCatalogObjects in there. I opened two of my mdbs and in both cases the table is just a dozen or so records long and contains just three entries (6,7, 12) having to do with xml, shemas etc

if you can not get an export of your mtb, I would go on the limb and graft the table (using Access) from some other intact mdb file.

However ... not having this table does not bode well: it could be a hopelessly outdated mdb - in other respects as well.

Regards

Vito

Thanks Mar 21, 2009

Thanks Vito,

Yes, I have also come to the conclusion that the problem is that the file is outdated....I can see that it was last edited in 2006....I will contact the client and see if they can provide me the info in some other format.

I am not familiar with Access, so I don't really understand what is involved in going "on the limb and graft the table (using Access) from some other intact mdb file", but when I have more time I will experiment with Access a bit and see how far I get.

Thanks again for your feedback.

Diarmuid
