Access 2000 Compact error - Error code is -1017

After compacting a corrupt Access 2K DB, I now have the table MSysCompactError, which contains ErroCode -1017, and ErrorDescription, "Could not find field 'Description'".

Anyone know what this means?

Note: This DB does have linked tables, and did before compact aswell, if that makes a difference.

Additional info: The table in question, according to MSysCompactError, is called 'StudentStatus'. Neither the original or the compacted version of this table have a field by the name of 'Description'.

Well, it seems to be fully functional and the corruption has gone. The error it's giving in that logfile(in the form of a Sys table), relates to the table which was originally corrupt; So I suppose it's to be expected.

One of those links suggests it's to do with having referential integrity enforced; and a few other reasons. But, it's working, so hoorah.

I'll try that Jetcomp next time. Looks a bit more indepth. Thanks.
