For some reason I get an invalid argument error with attached code or attached pic.
Error line is marked with : ERROR LINE

Could someone help me out?
Function Create_Database()

Dim dbnewDB As Database

Dim tdnewtable As tabledef

Dim fld As field

Dim idx As Index

Set dbnewDB = createdatabase("c:\structure\Dennis.mdb", dblanggeneral)

Set tdnewtable = New tabledef

Set fld = tdnewtable.createfield("Title", dbtext, 20)

tdnewtable.fields.append fld

Set fld = tdnewtable.createfield("Open", dbMemo, 20)

tdnewtable.fields.append fld

Set fld = tdnewtable.createfield("High", dbMemo, 20)

tdnewtable.fields.append fld

Set fld = tdnewtable.createfield("Low", dbMemo, 20)

tdnewtable.fields.append fld

Set fld = tdnewtable.createfield("Close", dbMemo, 20)

tdnewtable.fields.append fld

Set fld = tdnewtable.createfield("Signal_1", dbMemo, 20)

tdnewtable.fields.append fld

Set fld = tdnewtable.createfield("Equity_1", dbMemo, 20)

tdnewtable.fields.append fld

Set idx = tdnewtable.createindex

With idx

.Name = "idxTitle"

.fields.append.createfield ("Title") 'ERROR LINE

End With

tdnewtable.indexes.append idx

tdnewtable.Name = "tblcollection"

dbnewDB.tabledefs.append tdnewtable

Set dbnewDB = Nothing

End Function
