Delete Found Sets - Not Working?

My database has 3695 records. I used the find function (not a script) to choose 986 records I want to save. This find is simple, a field with an x in it. Then I click the little green pie chart at the top of the screen and the found set becomes the 2709 records I want to delete. I go to the records menu and choose "Delete Found Records". I get a dialog box that asks me to confirm. The dialog box mentions the 2709 records. I confirm. All is well so far. There ia a long pause. All the records are deleted.

 

I've tried variations. And I've followed directions is "Help" exactly.

 

I tried deleting records piecemeal, 500 at a time, still deletes alll records. I can delete one record, though I'm not willing to do that 2709 times.

 

I transferred the file to my Mac. Does the same thing.

 

Anyone know what's going on and how to fix it?

 

Thanks,

 

Thom
