Subject:Re: table repair quirk

I had this problem a while back, ~10'000 records and 256 fields -about 
40 are memo fields a few sec indexes. Did everything everybody suggested 
and no luck.

I spent a lot of time on this thing and it turned out there was an 
invisible problem in multiple records in one of the memo fields.

I made a copy of the table and deleted one memo field at a time. After 
screwing around I found that deleting a particular memo field solved the 
problem however the corruption was in several records so not being able 
to isolate which records had the problem I had to live with the bad 
table verify report. Everything works fine.
