What is the Microsoft Jet Database Engine ?

  • The JET engine is the database engine used by Microsoft Access and many other  applications including Payroll Mate.
  • This engine is free and is already included with most versions of Windows.
  • It's necessary to keep the JET database engine in good working condition for Payroll Mate to run properly. If you are interested to know more about keeping  a Jet 4.0 database in top working condition, please follow this link on the Microsoft website.
