This form allows you to scramble character data WITHIN A FIELD. It does this by creating a separate, temporary string with the value of the field you want to scramble. Then is starts at the top record of the main table and randomizes the value of the selcected field. As each character is copied back in, it is deleted from the temporary string.

Repeat this process for each field and the values will be thoroughly scrambled. Note: You must temporarily remove any unique indexes on a field, before you scramble it. You can re-establish it after the scrambling is done. Do not attempt to do this on Primary Keys or Foreign Keys, or you will lose Referential Integrity

To use this form, simply copy it into any access database. It will find all the tables and field names.

To Randomize FIELDS WITHING A TABLE, see my sample Datascramble.mdb.
