I am involved with maintenance of an Access database that was designed years ago.
I find srange fields which I do not know in the database. Ido not know yet where and what fore they are used.
They are
s_Generation
s_Guid
s_Lineage.
Will someone with experience please have a look at the table definition and data to see if he can point me in a direction.
