I have a Access97 db that from time to time becomes corrupt. To see who is accessing the db, I use ldbview to watch and observe who is both currently using the system and find out what user may have been the user who caused the error. I have noticed that the users with Win2k do not take the next available user number. Instead, they assume the role of User 1. I don't know how the .ldb user assignments work. What I want to know is if anyone else has seen this problem and to find out if this may be the root cause to my db going corrupt. I think this is also occuring with any Access2k db as well. I have noticed that when my Win2k users stay out of the db, the db does not become corrupt.
