This article applies only to a Microsoft Access database (.mdb).

For a Microsoft Access 2000 version of this article, see 253837.
When you open a linked SQL Server table that has a field of type UniqueIdentifier, you see #Deleted in the fields of all records.
You have Microsoft Jet 4.0, Service Pack 3 installed on your computer.
Obtain Microsoft Jet 4.0 Service Pack 4 (SP4) or later, which contains an updated version of the Microsoft Jet 4.0 database engine.

For additional information about how to obtain the latest Jet 4.0 service pack, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed at the beginning of this article.

Steps to Reproduce the Behavior

  1. Open the sample project NorthwindCS.adp (log in as the database owner).
  2. Create and then save the following stored procedure with the default name of StoredProcedure1:
    Create Procedure "StoredProcedure1"Asif exists (select * from sysobjects where id =object_id(N'[dbo].[GUID_Test]') and OBJECTPROPERTY(id, N'IsUserTable') = 1)drop table [dbo].[GUID_Test]CREATE TABLE [dbo].[GUID_Test] (   	[ColA]  uniqueidentifier ROWGUIDCOL  NOT NULL ,   	[ColB] [varchar] (50) NULL )                     ON [PRIMARY]   ALTER TABLE [dbo].[GUID_Test] WITH NOCHECK         ADD CONSTRAINT [PK_GUID_Test] PRIMARY KEY  NONCLUSTERED  ([ColA])                     ON [PRIMARY]     INSERT INTO GUID_TEST VALUES ('{DBAB6FFE-82B2-4D65-819E-32DD4D904C51}',      'TESTRECORD1')   INSERT INTO GUID_TEST VALUES ('{DBAB6FFE-82B2-4D65-819E-32DD4D904C52}',      'TESTRECORD2')   INSERT INTO GUID_TEST VALUES ('{DBAB6FFE-82B2-4D65-819E-32DD4D904C53}',      'TESTRECORD3') return					
  3. Double-click the StoredProcedure1 stored procedure. This creates a table named GUID_Test in the database.
  4. Create a new Access database called MyTest.mdb.
  5. On the File menu, point to Get External Data, and then click Link Tables.
  6. In the Link dialog box, change Files of type to ODBC Databases.
  7. In the Select Data Source dialog box, open or create a data source name (DSN) that points to NorthwindCS.
  8. Create a linked table to the GUID_Test table that you created earlier in SQL Server. If you are prompted to select an index column, click ColA.
  9. Open the dbo_GUID_Test table. Note that all the fields contain #Deleted.
