database in an unexpected state

P: n/a
Hi folks,

I have a problem where I copied the front end of an application to the
local office server. If a user opens the front end they get an error :

"Database is in an unexpected state; Microsoft Office Can't open it."

This Database has been converted from a prior version of microsoft
office access by using the DAO Compactdatabase method instead of the
convert database command on the tools menu (database Utilities
submenu). This has left the database in a partially converted state.

Here is the catch

If I open the same database it opens with no problems.

All users and myself are using MS Access version 2003 build
11.6566.8107 SP2

Does anyone know what is going on??????
Help or advice would be greatly appreciated
