Access 97 to XP Access Conversion Error

P: n/a
I recently created a new database in Access 2002. I took data from an
access 97 database converted one of the tables to access 2002 and then
imported it into a new table in access 2002. but for some strange
reason, every once in a while the data changes to Japanese characters,
it only happens once in a while, but once it happens that record is
lost. i have tried everything compacting, importing to a new
database, new table...What is causing this strange behavior?

Is it possible someone is changing the character set in your office?

I was installing some new stuff and came across an interesting pprogram
that MS stuck in my
Start/Programs/MS Office Tools area. (Who ever looks there??)
Anyway, it is called MS Office Language Settings.
I ran it for kicks and it asks what other language you would like to
support.
Cyrillic is listed 3 times.
Perhaps if you selected this option and THEN converted an mdb you would be
OK.

You might want to check http://groups.google.com, advanced search, group
*access* and look for Character set change convert as some of the words.
