Error message: Database could not be opened (Multiterm)

I am stuck with this error message (see attached file) and cannot create new entries in Multiterm 2019. I have been working the whole day without any problems and suddenly the error appeared. I have then made the update to the 2021 version of Studio and Multiterm but this didn’t change the situation. I can open Multiterm, I can search for entries an I was able to create one new entry and the next new entry had the error message again.

PDF Could anyone please give me some advice? Thanks Katharina

  • I have the Version of Multiterm 2021 and the Version of Studio 2021.

    I have now understood when this error happens: When I create a new entry and there is a word starting with an "a" in French language. Other words in French are o.k. but when it starts with "a", I have the error message and I can't go further. As soon as I delete the "a" at the beginning of the word, it's fine and I can save the entry. That's really strange, isn't it? When I save the entry without the "a" at the beginning and try to add the "a" later, the error message appears again... See the attachted screenshot.PDF
