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.

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