Sorry, I'm talking about 'create in design view' as a wizard. I can 'create' a
table in design view and also using the Tables wizard. I can set up the fields
and format them, and select a key. It's when I go to save the tables that the
1st error message above come up. A table with the name I've tried to save it as
appears in the tables listing but won't open: I get the other set of error
messages given above. I've been creating new tables in this database for about
5 years, it's only now I'm hitting trouble.
Is it worth starting a new database purely in .odb format rather than mess
about any more with this one? after all, I can still use the existing tables
without problem.
