    Does anyone know if linking a .dbf to an access database can cause
    corruption in the .mdb. I have several links to seperate dbf's, and there are
    alot of requests back and forth.

    My .mdb is getting corrupted roughly 2 times a day for the past week. In the
    past 4-5 years, I have only had to repair maybe 5 times. So, there is
    something that has changed, but I can't place it. I have looked at Tony Toews
    suggestions, plus several other web sites, but have had no luck.

    Please help!!

    The 2 main reasons for corruption are users that turn of a process during a
    write, usually by turning off the machine with an open form, or bad
    hardware, usually a bad NIC card that's dropping packets. While all files
    can corrupt, Access is particularly vulnerable because of large file sizes.
    If you have a new user, or one with an unreliable machine, that's the first
    place to look.

    Also, repairs sometimes import partial corruption. Try building a new
    database, and importing all the opjects one at a time.
