I need help once again... I have a database that has one main table for most of it's data. For some reason, it looks like two of the records have been corrupted... because of these recoreds, the table cannot be opened in Datasheet view (get an "invalid argument" error before it fails to open), and any attempt to repair the database or copy the table results in the entire Access session to crash and an error report to be sent. Attempt to export the table have the same result. I should also mention that the table MSysCompactError comes up, showing entries with error codes 1003, 1017, and 1053. Each entry notes has the "Could not find field 'Description'." in the description field. The table that I'm working with does not have a field by that name. I presume these errors are from my attempts to compart and repair. I have a form that view individual records, and when I scroll through those records there are only two that cause the form to hose up with strange characters and Invalid Data (#error) notices. I'm thinking that if I can find a way to kill those two records, I may be able to salvage the rest of the data. How would I go about doing this without opening the forms or table?
