I would suspect that you either (a) have a corrupt file or (b) have reference issues.

Are you using ActiveX controls in the application? If you are, then you'll have to insure that you have the design-time version of those controls on your machine.

If you're not, then try this:

Make a backup, then Compact your database. After doing that, try to Compile your databse - from the VBA window, click Debug - Compile. Fix any errors, and continue this until the menuitem is disabled. Now Compact again.

If that doesn't fix your issue, try moving everything into a new, blank database. Then compact - compile - compact again.

If that doesn't fix your issue, review your References (from the VBA editor, click tools - references). Post those references here and we'll review them.

Yes, and also take a moment to describe what type of data this field is supposed to contain.
