    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.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
