I am using Access 2003, something happened one of the records, instead of having the information it is supposed to have, has #Error and I cannot delete the record, whenever anything is done with the file the Invalid Argument error window come up, what can be done?
Thanks!

Return population for a City
If you have a list of cities in A2:A100, use Data, Geography. Then =A2.Population and copy down.

Try compacting and repairing the database. You may need to do it more than once.

Then, takes steps to avoid corruption -- the Invalid Argument error is one of the signs that things may be about to go wrong.

1. If you haven't already done it, split the database into a front and back end.
2. Set the database to compact on close.
3. Make regular backups of the front end and the back end. You will need to do this separately.
