I have a column that is Long Text when I attempt to edit a cell it randomly inserts characters and does other weird things. The column has French HTML text in it. What could be causing this and what could fix it? I assume there might be a byte offset problem but I never dealt with that before. I've googled around and haven't been able to find anything on it.


<li>Se présente en nappes.</li>

When I type a space, , right after the first word Se it inserts an e, e.g.,

<li>Se e présente en nappes.</li>

I don't work with Access very much so this is quite strange to me.

Thanks in advance.

It turned out to be a \n character that was imported into the record. Did a query on the data and removed it and updated the record. Not having issues anymore.
