also i found that if the sql table name has the following togther, the problem you have may happen:

1, the table name has spaces
2, the field name have spaces
3, there plenty of records and fields in the table

the above can be tackled by removing the spaces from fiels names and the table name

None of these seem to help.

To elaborate, '#Deleted' appears in all records when viewing the table through Access. This has worked before, but after moving the database to a new server the problem occured. It also only seems to happen to this table - there are several other linked tables that all work perfectly.
Has the primary key of the table changed, or didn't it appear not unique for any reason in Access? Try to read the records through a query with the property "Snapshot" instead of "Dynaset". If you can see the records correct, it may a problem with the key or non-unique entries in the table. Another possible reason is a problem with your local odbc-driver, if the server changed to another version.

Thanks for the suggestions but we found the solution in the end.

In case anyone else runs across this problem, the reason was that a field type had been changed to bigint in SQL, and Access doesn't seem to support numbers of that size. Changing the field type back to int solved it (and it was just coincidence that it all happened when we moved servers - it was the first time the linked tables had been refreshed since the change)
