Once again could I make a plea here to bug/problem reporters, please will you

        the output of running   "uname -a"  so we know what your machine is.

        which version of acedb you are using, for 4_8 you can simply
        type   "acedb_prog -version", for earlier versions its best to
        run xace and go to the "Admin->Program Status" window.

What this looks like is that you are encountering a bug that we thought we had
fixed with aliasing/cross referencing. Although CAT 91964185 may not appear
earlier in your file, it may cross reference to, or be cross referenced by
another object already in the database.

As far as I know this bug is fixed in the latest code available from:


Are you using this code or earlier code ?
