I'm assuming that you tried a compact and repair.

Are the weird symbols in a memo field? If so, here's what to try.

1. Make a complete backup of the database mdb file(s) and put away for safe 

2. Create a query that excludes the particular problem record. Include all 
fields or use the * wildcard. You need a primary key for this to work so that 
you know exactly which record. An autonumber field is best if you don't 
already have a PK. After running the query to ensure the proper records are 
returned, change it to a Make Table query and run it.

3. Next change the query back to a Select query. This time only search for 
the problem record. Make sure that all fields show EXCEPT for the problem 
field. Run it to make sure. Then change the query to an append query and 
append the bad record to the table that you just created.

4. Delete the corrupt table. Rename the new table with the same name as the 
old one. You might have problems if there are relationships involved.

5. Create a new database and import everything from the old database. Use 
this DB in the future.

Tony Toews has an excellent web page on database corruption.

Allen Brown also has excellent info on corruption.

Possible to delete the Workspace of a project ONLY for re-creation with a new template?
I've improved the central template about a day after a user of mine create two new project workspaces (that aren't being used yet). I want to get rid of the ones that are out there and have them republish using the new template. Normally, I go out and delete the project from the published database ONLY and check the option to delete its associated workspace/ sharepoint site.

how to split records in Access report
Hi, I was wondering if anyone here might be able to help me here. This problem has been driving me up the wall. I have a report that shows records in it. Some of the records are split namely starting on one page finishing on the next. For example - Maintenance plan - Irrigation monitoring plan where "- Maintenance plan" is all one field and yet the "- Irrigation monitoring plan" would be printed at the top of the next page if this happened to print at the bottom of a page. What should happen if the two lines don't fit is that both lines get moved to the next page. ...

Two table query not giving expected result

Does anyone create sites without using tables for layout?
I know that a trend is to create websites that are pure css, and don't rely on tables for layout. Are devs taking that approach also? I checked a couple of major websites like and they do seem to use tables for layout. Any info out there focused on table-less dev? Most of us try but I think our dirty little secret is most also cop out and start using tables here and there when their pages become increasingly complex. You'll note most of the "pure" CSS sites are often little more than what we call StackPanels in XAML using CS...

Phantom tables
After adding and deleting numerous tables in a Word 2003 document and updating my list of tables a few times, I get phantom table entries in my list of tables. Some have no number or caption, but the leader is there and a page number, and they throw off the numbering by causing the next table to be numbered as if the phantom table were really there. Other entries in the list of tables are just random bits of text that appear as if they were tables. I have tried to find hidden codes or mis-applied styles, to no avail. I'm hoping someone can help me find these phantoms. Wo...

Form Objects Disappear When Filter Returns No Records

However, it does not work in an Access 2007 foooooooooooooorm textbox set to Rich Text. I also want this full justification in an Access 2007 report also. Thanks. Alan Doeans't Work in Access...

macro to delete rows with zero value
Hello, I need some help in writing a macro to look at a column of values and when it gets to a cell with zero value I want to delete all rows from there down. The data will be sorted in decending order so all rows after the first row that has a zero value will also have zero value. For example, with the data below: I want to look at column D (which would have various numbers of rows) and once there is a value of zero as in row 5, I want all rows from row 5 to the end deleted.

Quickly locating duplicate records

I need to identify duplicate records and eliminate both exact duplicates and duplicates where one key field is the same but the other is not -- i.e., I have to make a determination of which record is most accurate. I can eliminate the exact duplicates using the advanced filter, but it is the other type that is problematic.
