access error 3799 when backup or compact and repair

I now get an error "could not find field "Description" when I try to backup or do a Compact & Repair on my Access database.  This database is linked to a "backend" Access file and has a lot of code.  Help on the error says "(error 3799) A column that does not exist is being referenced"  Funny thing is that when I open previous backups and try to back those up or compact and repair, I also get the same error.

Hi acdecal,

Can you try adding a field "Description" to the relevant Table?

I do not know which table it is referring to and I have over 30 tables and hundreds of commands.

It appears the problem is: I was out of disk space.   Once I cleared up some room the backup worked as well as a compact and repair.  I did try your decompile sugestion and that is when I realized the problem.  Also the decompile shrunk my file slightly.  I will award you the points for the effort and the good suggestion.
