Finding an index in an Access DB

    At some point an index has been added to a table in my Access DB that
    does not allow duplicates. I can't see where I ever put an index on
    this field.

    But, when I tried to add 2nd records with a duplicate value in the 2nd
    field (not the primary key field) I get an error saying "The changes
    you requested to the table were unsuccessful because they would create
    duplicate values in the index, primary key or relationship."


    When I open the table in design mode the "Indexed" property on the
    field says "No"


    1. How do I find the name of this index?
    2. Can I delete it through the Access menus or do I use SQL statements?



    Best regards,
    John

    With the table open in Design view, select Indexes from the View menu.

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!
