Steps to Reproduce the Behavior

  1. Open the sample project NorthwindCS.adp (log in as the database owner).
  2. Create and then save the following stored procedure with the default name of StoredProcedure1:
    Create Procedure "StoredProcedure1"
    As
    if exists (select * from sysobjects where id =
    object_id(N'[dbo].[GUID_Test]') and OBJECTPROPERTY(id, N'IsUserTable') = 1)
    drop table [dbo].[GUID_Test]
    
    
    CREATE TABLE [dbo].[GUID_Test] (
       	[ColA]  uniqueidentifier ROWGUIDCOL  NOT NULL ,
       	[ColB] [varchar] (50) NULL )
                         ON [PRIMARY]
       ALTER TABLE [dbo].[GUID_Test] WITH NOCHECK 
            ADD CONSTRAINT [PK_GUID_Test] PRIMARY KEY  NONCLUSTERED  ([ColA])
                         ON [PRIMARY]  
    
       INSERT INTO GUID_TEST VALUES ('{DBAB6FFE-82B2-4D65-819E-32DD4D904C51}',
          'TESTRECORD1')
       INSERT INTO GUID_TEST VALUES ('{DBAB6FFE-82B2-4D65-819E-32DD4D904C52}',
          'TESTRECORD2')
       INSERT INTO GUID_TEST VALUES ('{DBAB6FFE-82B2-4D65-819E-32DD4D904C53}',
          'TESTRECORD3') 
    
    return
    					
  3. Double-click the StoredProcedure1 stored procedure. This creates a table named GUID_Test in the database.
  4. Create a new Access database called MyTest.mdb.
  5. On the File menu, point to Get External Data, and then click Link Tables.
  6. In the Link dialog box, change Files of type to ODBC Databases.
  7. In the Select Data Source dialog box, open or create a data source name (DSN) that points to NorthwindCS.
  8. Create a linked table to the GUID_Test table that you created earlier in SQL Server. If you are prompted to select an index column, click ColA.
  9. Open the dbo_GUID_Test table. Note that all the fields contain #Deleted.
