The records have probably been deleted by another program/process whist you had the table open in MS Access.  This is why the error will be generated.   The solution is to either rollback the SQL transaction to recover the records or type in more data.  Close and re-open the table (after commit/rollback) in order to get rid of the #Deleted record status.

the records are still there, when i 'import' the table instead of linking it, you can see all of the records....................., but i need to have the table linked because the sql table is constantly being updated by hundreds of other users and i need to be able to pull that data..................

Try to delete the linked table and re-link it back.

done it twice and having the same problem.  One other thing to note is each of these tables has a few hundred thousand entries, is that causing the problem?

i have not, and i am a little weary about doing it in the DB i am working in because somebody else manages it, but i have tried linking the tables in 3 other access databases and it acts the same way.......

So it turns out there is some issue with the SQL table, got ahold of one of the DB Analysts here, they don't know what the problem is with it, but they created a workaround that does what i need it to.....................very strange..............
