what was the Data type that was added?
if the data type is only available for the newer version of access, you will definitely gat the error you are getting now.

the table impStudentDups is the problem.
create a blank db and import all the tables except for the table impStudentDups

then do a compact and repair of the new db.
recreate the table impStudentDups if needed

ImpStudentDups seems to cause the problem...
Create a new database and import your objects from the problematic database...
Restore table ImpStudentDups  from a backup....

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!
