Corrupt replica problem


I have a Access97 database that is a designmaster that only I have access to and the users works with a set of replicas. It works well almost all time.
But sometimes there occour some replication errors between those replicas and its only
2 tables that are involved. If it's syncronization error there's no problem to solve it but when it's a data error in a memo field the only way to solve it is to delete all records in the design master and copy all records to it(except for the corrupt ones) and then manually recreate the corrupt record. After that I create a new set of replicas.

Here's my last problem:
When I tried to do it yesterday everything looked right until I tried to open the 'recreated' replica. Access crashed immideately when I tried to open the database.
The error was this:

"Microsoft Access - Application error"
"The instruction at '0x651a3460' referenced memory at '0x00000072'. The memory could not be 'read'".

It doesn't matter if I use a computer with NT4 or W2k.
I temporary solved the problem by copy my design master to the users.

Can someone give me a clue what might have happend?

OK then you need a special shortcut.
Can you put the shortcut that you use with the workgroup file in it or you have joined to the MDW using WGAdmin.?
Most of the times you need not join you can specify the workgroup on the shortcut.

as follows...
"C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office\MSACCESS.EXE" D:\MY_Files\TT01.mdb /Wrkgrp "D:\MY_Files\TTsys.MDW" /User

Now for you to decompile you database it would be as follows and then just carry on the steps from the previous post.
"C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office\MSACCESS.EXE" D:\MY_Files\TT01.mdb /Wrkgrp "D:\MY_Files\TTsys.MDW" /excl decompile /User

let me know how you make out with this.

To devtha,
Can't do that. Database size is about 40MB

The database can only be opend with a special dedicated workgroupfile. Do you think it will work if I change to that one with workgroupadministrator before I run Start/Run .... and will I be able to provide the application with a valid username/password(Admin has no rights at all)?

I finally found a good replica that I could make a designmaster of. Thanks for your suggestions.
