Hi,

I have an access.mdb file with around 25 tables in it. All
tables worked fine with mdbtools except one.

This table table has many columns and the column type
is being reported incorrectly by mdbtools for about half
of them.

The first column has an incorrct type and all subsequent
columns have the type of the previous column until
about half way through. From there on the column types
are correct.

This also results in the data being extracted to have
incorrect column widths and results in
incorrect/corrupted data.

All mdb tools used seem to have the same problem.

My system is Red Hat 8.0 using mdb tools 0.5.1

I have attached an mdb file with only the problem table
included.

Thanks for your help.
