CAUSE

This problem can occur if you attempt to update a database record that has an empty field. The setting for the database column does not allow zero-length entries.

RESOLUTION

To resolve this issue, make sure that all data fields that do not allow zero-length entries are populated before you submit the form.

WORKAROUND

To work around this issue, start Microsoft Access and then open the database table in Design view. Set the Allow Zero Length attribute to Yes for each field that you want to allow blank entries.
