Advanced: Requires expert coding, interoperability, and multiuser skills.

If you place the insertion point in a field with the data type OLE Object, choose Insert Object from the Edit menu, and then click the cancel button in the Insert Object dialog box, the record will still be "dirty." A dirty record is one that has been edited.

If the field is part of an existing record, the previous contents of the field are not deleted or modified, but the record is rewritten when you leave it.


This behavior no longer occurs in Microsoft Access version 7.0.


Steps to Reproduce Behavior

  1. Open a table that includes an OLE Object field.
  2. Place the insertion point in the OLE Object field.
  3. Select Insert Object from the Edit menu, and then choose Cancel. Note that the record selector indicates that the record is dirty by displaying the pencil indicator.
