Open admin client and Compact from there. (this will work).

And if it is a database (mail) using template refresh the design.

Note; To compact open admin client and right click on the file and compact.

removing icon, compacting, replacing icon may also work.

And check the technote:

Use Compact -C to compact the database which is reporting this error

If you use transactional logging, you must run fixup and compact with 'special' options, that may explain why they don't seem to work:

fixup -j database.nsf

compact -b database.nsf (you can also use compact -C as hemanth suggests, but just "compact" won't work (or at least won't work as expected)

Perhaps this idea helps:

Here the recommandation from upper link:
To repair this kind of file:
- put it on a server (if it is not already)
- add the line SKIP_FIXUP=1 in the notes.ini of the server (this prevents the consistency check of the database)
- restart the server
- run the command "load compact databasename -M" (this error often occurs with an old ODS version database limited to 1 Gb and this command extend the db to 4 Gb)
After that, you should open the database.

Have you tired shutting down the domino server and running a fixup/compact/updall from a OS level using DOS?

Because the Domino Server isn't running then the structure of the file can be fully available.  To do this navigate to this open a MS DOS Box, navigate to the Domino program directory where the task files are (e.g. C:Lotus\Domino) and run the taks you require (NFixup, Ncompact etc) with the relevant DB Details.

Yes, run fixup after shutting down dominos. Has worked for me on numerous occasions.  Seems to clear problems much easier.
