Is this an MS Access file? and do you have MS Access installed on your computer?

Expert:  Richard replied 2 years ago.
Thanks Adam,
I also see you rated be as bad service, can you please consider changing this? as we were not yet finished.

It appears that the file may be corrupted (this can happen with MS Access files)

Please download it, then open MS Access. Then open the file from within MS Access (rather than double clicking on the file)

Let me know please Adam if you still have the same problem.
