Good night Samuel and the rest of the team.

I am attaching/sharing my progress today. One thing I forgot to mention is that I now used the installation files found online/this site. So I will discard my previous executable package. Is that fine?

Merci Beaucoup!

Above is the only option that worked


I clicked ' no' many times in order to continue

Then the upload continued



At Last!!!! I see great success.

I feel so relieved. It works

upload to main db
by Joan Mc Donald - 9 April 2018

Good morning developers team.

If intermediate db was successfully uploaded and successfully updated the main db, what could cause my upload of main to give dialog box ' It may not be a database that your application recognizes or the file may be corrupt'?

Hoping to get some ideas/guidance.

Hi Joan,

This an ACCESS based problem. It means your main or intermediate database files are corrupted or have exceeded the 2GB size. The good thing is that ACCESS has tools to solve the problem. Deal with it as follows:
  1. Start MS ACCESS
  2. Open climsoft main db from ACCESS
  3. From ACCESS look for command Compact and Repair Database and click it.
  4. Wait for the repair process to complete
  5. Close ACCESS
  6. Repeat for intermediate db
If you encounter any hitch please let me know

Re: upload to main db

Good morning Samuel and Marcellin,

I was not able to, because of the necessary permission to open the main v3 db.

However, the St.Vincent main v2 was accessible (able to open).

So an attempt to upload data from  St.Vincent main v2 to main v3 (using main MS access and v2 as source) was the  next step- but no progress. The preparing to upload took very long with no visible activity.

Following Samuel's steps nonetheless, the Compact and Repair Database was done for main v3 db and intermediate db from access in that order. The upload to main was attempted again without success.
