    Default Weird things happening in Alpha Desktop

    Hi,

    Today I imported 80 records into an empty table, when I looked it said 80 records had been imported but when I indexed or sorted any column there were only 75 records. I went through and checked row by row and found 5 records that had a company field beginning with the letter i (I) weren't included, I kept trying different things but I was having the same problem.

    I went into the csv file and added the letter A infront of the records that began with I and the records imported into the table and are now included in the record count no matter what field I use to sort by. Anyone have any idea why this would happen?

    What you saw as i might have been the screen representation of some special character that prevented them from showing up correctly in Alpha.
    There can be only one.

    Notepad Plus is handy for finding those characters.
