Form/Subform in XP

P: n/a
Hi all
have a new XP box and a strange problem: a field in the subform comes up
with the #Error symbol. Opening and closing the form fixes it - for a
single record. When this record is processed and deleted the problem re
occurs. This application is running on LOTS of other PCs from Win 98 up to
and including XP with no problems: any ideas? Its doing my head in!

many thanks

There is a fairly good chance that the database is partially corrupt on this
one machine (assuming it's not shared data).

Try a repair: Tools | Database Utilities | Compact/Repair.

If that doesn't work, try creating a new (blank) database, and importing all
the objects.

Hmm, many thanks Allen. I'll try the Import option - forgot about that one!
(Compact Repair doesn't work) Iv'e tried running earlier versions of the
app on that machine - same problem.

Thanks again
