CreateTable error with a specific MDB file

Discussion created by bdridaho on Jan 8, 2014
When I execute CreateTable_management from toolbox in ArcCatalog with a specific MDB file as the first parameter, I receive the error quoted below. Attached is screen capture of the toolbox dialog:
ArcGIS Desktop 10.1
Windows 7 SP1

Executing: CreateTable C:\data1\attributes_GDB.mdb sources C:\data2\IGS-NCGMP09.mdb\IGS_sources #
Start Time: Wed Jan 08 17:37:18 2014
ERROR 999999: Error executing function.
The table was not found.
The table was not found. [GDB_ObjectClasses]
The Microsoft Jet database engine cannot find the input table or query 'GDB_ObjectClasses'.  Make sure it exists and that its name is spelled correctly.
Failed to execute (CreateTable).

Any suggestions about what is unique about an MDB file that would cause this error?
