When you attach a Paradox version 4.0 table with a single primary key that is a one-character alphanumeric field, "#Deleted" is displayed in all the records in the table.


Increase the FieldSize property setting of the primary key field, add another field to the primary key, or delete the current primary key.


Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in Microsoft Access version 2.0. This problem no longer occurs in Microsoft Access version 7.0.


Steps to Reproduce Problem

  1. Create a Paradox 4.0 table with a one-field primary key that is a one-character alphanumeric field.
  2. Add a record to the table.
  3. Start Microsoft Access and open any database.
  4. Attach the table you created in step 1.
  5. View the table in Datasheet view. "#Deleted" is displayed in the record.


For more information about attaching Paradox tables, search for "Paradox files," and then "Importing and Attaching Paradox Tables" using the Microsoft Access Help menu.
