moving database from MAC to PC -- field slippage

For some reason fields in forms are being replaced unintentionally.  A field from one table is basically being designated as another table/field altogether.  Because I develop on the MAC, and use a PC as a server for my remote client, I am wondering if this phenomena I call field slippage is related to moving the file from the MAC to the PC, or vice versa?  Has anyone else encountered such "ghost" maneuverings? There doesn't seem to be anyway to "lock down" the fields selected, and there should not be any need, but it is a rather frustrating problem...

 

Suggestions are most welcome.
