recurring corruption

I have read many resources regarding corruption, and implemented as much as
possible to prevent it, but I have one user that encounders corruption of
their front end database, when no-one else does. Is there something on this
users station that could cause this? I'm just fishing for any ideas on
possible causes, so any suggestions / tips are appreciated!

Have you tried tying the user's hands behind his/her back for twenty-four
hours and monitoring the occurence of corruption during that time, as
opposed to other times?

In working with Access since 1759 I have never seen a corrupted mdb file,
except a few sent to me when I briefly toyed with the idea of becoming a
"repairer". (I recovered a few of these, but when I looked at them I
couldn't bring myself to let them return to life; I lied and said that I
had been unsuccessful.)

The only times I've seen corruption of a front end database was when a person of
mediocre incompetence setup the client network to share the FE MDE.

anyone that is subjected to MDB will constantly fight random
corruption

It's like going to ask a 1st grader for financial advice

Tony;
I'm so sorry that you try to subject everyone else to your so-called
'best practices'
you're wrong and you're an idiot
My 'best practices' say 'fire anyone using mdb for anything and then
spit on them'

Oh, you didn't start anything at all. Suzie aka A a r o n K e m p f aka T o d o s
M e n o s has had some problems with Microsoft and some of us from long before you
asked your question.

We had a user that periodically kicked his power strip and caused a
short, that caused corruption.

That's a very good observation, actually. Sometimes really weird
things can happen to a PC with power problems. You might try
swapping in a new power supply, especially one that is rated higher.
I've seen unbelievable arcane and unpredictable problems go away
when a new power supply was put in. Mostly, it interferes with hard
drive operation, which would be a real vulnerability for Access.
