Access 2010 Records Mysteriously Deleted

Experts. I have a .mdb database running in 2010 with two main tables tblProperty and tblGetPropInfo. tblGetPropInfo is linked all over this database and linked in other databases. The database is about 5 years old and I've never had this issue.

In the last week records are "mysteriously" gone from tblGetPropInfo. I've had to restore it back to a previous day when all records are there. This is fine except if changes were made, those changes are lost.

I've checked to see if someone accidently saved over the "property name" field but the autonumber for the record isn't there any longer so the record is completly gone. I've also search through all the code in the database and there isn't any reference to delete * from tblGetPropInfo.

If anyone has any suggestions as to what's happening or how to fix this please let me know. I would really appreciate it.

The solution seemed to be compacting and repairing the database. I did a compact and repair and nothing "disappeared" for a little over a week. Now today another property disappeared so tonight I will do another compact and repair. The database doesn't like something that's going on.

I'm going to use as my resolution until I stumble upon something else.

Thank you for the feedback!

Its possible that the records got deleted directly, even if there is no 'Delete *' in your code.

Do you have any forms that are based on this table?  If so, check the setting of the Allow Deletions property.

Do your users have direct access to the tables - which would allow them to delete records without code or forms?

Have you had any issue with corruption recently?  Compact/repairing can completely remove corrupt records, ID and all.  (The records would have been lost/inaccessible anyhow)

"tblGetPropInfo is linked all over this database and linked in other databases"

So any of these other databases that use the table could have users that are deleting records?

There is a possibilty but like I said, we've had the system in place for so long and this has never been an issue. We haven't launched any new databases in the last month (since this has happened).
