Can't Remove weird "#Deleted#" Records


I have a weird situation (see attached) image where one of the records in one of my tables appears to have been deleted.  I or one of my users must have done something, but I don't know what.  For the life of me I cannot remove this record so that my queries, forms, and reports will work.  Can someone suggest what might be the problem?

Have you tried a Compact & Repair on the DB ?

Looks like a corrupted record and/or index..

If this a .mdb or .accdb?

Make a backup before you do anything.

If it is a .mdb  then I would download the JETCOMP4 utility from Microsoft.

If it is an .accdb then run a compact on the database from the Access menus.

If that does not fix the issue then
1)  restore a backup copy
2) create a new blank database
3) import all the objects into the new blank database
