Repair Locks Up

 Repair Locks Up

I have an .mdb that goes from around 150-250mb. Like
a good programmer, I try to repair and compact it regularly.
Sometimes I use the repair facility through the ODBC
widget in the control panel and try to repair the .mdb that
the entry is pointing to. The .mdb resides on a server.
    Two times in a row now, I tried to repair it and the
function locked up. I had to kill the process. Upon trying
to get back into the .mdb, I couldn't. I couldn't open it,
repar it, compact it or link to it. It was shot and I had to
restore it from a back up.
    The error I get AFTER the repair craps out, when I try to
repair again, or compact, or open, or link:

\\Isserver\isdata\boe\boe_be.db is not a valid index


BELTFLE is not a valid index

\\Isserver\isdata\boe\boe_be.db is the path to the .mdb
and BELTFLE is actually a table. What the heck does this
have to do with indexes anayway? My indexes are valid
(to my knowledge) and get used all the time.

Any help would be GREATLY appreciated,
