I rebuilt a file today and recieved this message in the synopsis at the end
of the rebuild process.
'One field value skipped'
The database seems intact - what does this mean ?

Recover does NOT (I repeat in the most strident possible terms, NOT)
"rebuild" files. It examines the structure and STRIPS OUT every suspect
data bit it finds. It may or may not report such discards. It can
discard layout objects, scripts or script steps, relationships, value
lists, field defs or data. That is why it should be called "Recover
Data" and used only to get data from crashed or corrupt files into clean
clones of the files.
Do not Recover files as routine maintenance. It will leave you with
files which may or may not function as you expect, and which will
certainly be less stable than previously.

: I've got a CRecordset derived class that does just fine
: at inserting all the fields of the set except one.
It appears to be a bug in the Microsoft CRecordset class.
If I put the assignment of any of the database field members
in a separate simple assignment statement it works just fine.
However if I put the assignment in a more complex statement
m_myDBFieldMember = AnyThingHere;
for(i=0, m_myDBFieldMember=0; i < N; i++)
m_myDBFieldMember |= array[i];
