My memo field in a 4.5 is 17,392. The same memo field in a5v5 after compacting is 1,288,027,528. I tried this twice with the same results. Is this a problem? How do I solve it?

This is a problem which seems to indicate some form of corruption in the memo field.

Check the V4 board for discussions of memo corruption.

Without knowing if your memo field is contained in a dbf or resides in its own dbf it is hard to offer suggestions.

Stan - Thank you. Packing the table has not solved the problem.
