Object has ceased to exist error when editing a record

Good morning experts,

I have a quirky Sharepoint issue that has fallen into my lap.  We use Sharepoint for our intranet and to store much of our customer and business information.  One of our employees was updating our client information and on only one record when he tries to edit it he gets the following error every time:

Attempted to use an object that has ceased to exist. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80030102 (STG_E_REVERTED))

He tried several other records after this one and was able to edit them without any problem.  

I am not a Sharepoint guru by any stretch of the imagination.  I would say I am at best a power user of Sharepoint and MS SQL.  I do have full domain admin rights so I can perform any tasks requested but I don't even know where to start on this one.

Thanks for your help!

The issue occurs when the user who created the entry has left the company and the entry got orphaned. You can fix the problem either by deleting the entry or opening the entry in SPD and modifying the user account.

Thanks for the info.  I finally figured out how to get sharepoint designer to connect to our sharepoint (I told you I am a sharepoint rookie) but I can't for the life of me figure out how to edit the actual data.  I can find the list and how to edit it and the columns and a whole bunch of other stuff but I can't get to the records themselves.  Can you help?
