What to do with this error when I run the macro Company and repair command button.

I get an error from this code:

Private Sub Command5_Click()
On Error GoTo Err_Command5_Click

CommandBars("Menu Bar"). _
Controls("Tools "). _
Controls("Database utilities"). _
Controls("Compact and repair database..."). _

Exit Sub

MsgBox Err.Description
Resume Exit_Command5_Click

End Sub

I found this code on line and thought it would work.
