i wondered if someone could help.

I have just appended 100 or so records into a table.

Once appended 2 of these records within the table have included the word "Null" into fields not occupied by any content.

I have tried deleted the word null from the table and an error appears:

"You tried to assign the Null value to a variable that is not a variant data type"

If I can help it I dont want to delete records from table and reappend.

Thanks

Paul

Are the relevent fields in the table set up to accept NULL values or not? If not then there must be an entry for the fields, if the fields CAN accept NULL values then where it's saying "Null" in the field it doesn't mean that "Null" is actually stored there as a value - NULL means a lack of a value so you won't be able to delete it (as it doesn't technically exist).

Hope that clarifies
