Sure that the index isn't already present?
Normally I use always a DROP followed by an ADD.

Access has a limit of 32 indexes.  Are you bumping into that?  Note that it creates indexes on it's own if your using RI.

JDettman,
I think that might be it. What's RI?

Referential Integrety, you can specify on the Relationship form.
Just check by opening the table in design mode and select Tools/Indexes.
