    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.
