Technical Support from Microsoft Support ProfessionalsMicrosoft Support professionals can help you walk through the steps that are included in the referenced articles. Although Support Professionals can help you troubleshoot your database, Microsoft cannot guarantee that an Access database can be recovered or that data can be recovered during this process. Because a Support Professional will be working with your database, support of this nature is considered Advisory Services level support.
Contacting Advisory ServicesMicrosoft Advisory Services is an hourly fee-based, consultative support option that provides proactive support beyond your break-fix product maintenance needs. This is a remote, phone-based support option that includes working with the same technician for assistance with issues like product migration, code review, or new program development. This service is typically used for shorter engagements, and is designed for developers and IT professionals who do not require the traditional onsite consulting or sustained account management services that are available from other Microsoft support options.
