P: n/a
Working in Access 2000:

I have found several posts for this error message in various forums
across the internet, but no answers. Can anyone explain why this
happens?

It only seems to occur when the record contains a memo field with >
2000 characters in it.

I have tried repairing, compacting, rebuilding, and copying by
datasets too and from other databases. Nothing seems to work.

Even if someone told me this was a known, unfixed,
you-have-to-live-with-it, bug I would be happy.

Thanks.
