    Good Morning all,

    I have a table that maintains Date, Route, Customer Number and Stop. I have
    these as key fields so as to not duplicate from a Append Query that I use to
    update the table.

    For the past couple of days/Weeks I have noticed that he table Drops it keys
    and allows duplicates.

    How can I prevent this or is this a bug with Access?

    On rare occassions, Access can drop the index when you perform a repair. If
    the index is corrupt, it drops the index in preference to dropping records.

    This should not be happening on a regular basis, so something else is wrong
    here. Firstly, make sure you have the latest service pack for your version
    of Office, and also (assuming Access 2000 or later) the latest service pack
    for JET 4. Available from:
    http://support.microsoft.com/gp/sp
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/239114

    If that does not solve the problem, tell us more about this database:
    - Access version?
    - Split (FE/BE)?
    - Multiple users over a network?
    - Post the SQL for the query.
