Whats the difference between CONCAT and CONCATENATE?
The newer CONCAT function can reference a range of cells. =CONCATENATE(A1,A2,A3,A4,A5) becomes =CONCAT(A1:A5)

It depends what you mean by corruption.

And based on your other threads I don't think corruption is your problem.:)

If it was you would be having more serious errors than input past EOF.

Under Tools>Database Utilities you'll find Compact and Repair...

Give that a go, but I still don't think that's going to solve your problem.

yes, the problem was in the input file, one of the columns was using scientific notation, when that was changed just to straight numbers, the database was fine, so the curroption issue was none-existent, it was a input file issue.

And I can't really tell if the VBA was written to account for that or what, but I am slowly learning it.
