Error 1004: Error Accessing Database

John Logue Updated by John Logue

Error 1004 indicates trouble accessing the Access Database. It seems to be associated with Service Pack 2 or 3 for Windows XP. The problem originally occurred in 2007.

The solution is to find and register MSJTES40.DLL.

  1. On the bottom left corner of the keyboard, the key between CTRL and ALT is called the "Windows key." Hold it down and type the letter 'R.' This opens the Run box.
  2. In the Run box, type "CMD" and press Enter. This opens the black DOS box.
    1. If the operating system is 64 bit Windows 7, type into the DOS box: "CD \WINDOWS\SYSWOW64" and press Enter.
    2. If another operating system (32 bit or XP), type into the DOS box: "CD \WINDOWS\SYSTEM32" and press Enter.
  3. Type "REGSVR32 MSJTES40.DLL" and press Enter.
  4. Type "Exit" to close the DOS box.

If the REGSVR32 command indicated "SUCCESS," go back into the program. It should now operate properly.

How did we do?
