Conversion from Access 97 to 2003 & get a "Conversion Errors" tabl



In Access2003, I'm selecting "Tools/Database Utilities/Convert Database/to
Access 2002 - 2003 File Format". I select a Access 97 file and hit the
convert button. After creating the new file name and hitting the save button
I get a message that Access encountered errors and I should check the
"Conversion Errors" table.
The Converted tables have the correct number of records, Forms and Report
look good and the Queries seen to run correctly.
When I open the "Conversion Errors" table I see 2 records with 3 fields.
Their fields are "Object Type", "Object Name" and "Error Description". Both
records have "Table" as data in the "Object Type", "MSysObjects" as data in
the "Object Name" field. One of the "Error Description" fields has "-1017:
Could not find field 'Description'.". The other has "-1611: Could not find
field 'Description'.".
I can not any field called "MSysObjects" nor can I find anything on the WEB
or in Microsoft relating to the two "Error Description".
Should I be concerned about the conversion errors? Does anyone know what
might be causeing them or how to convert without getting them?
I tried doing a Database Repair and a Database Compact in Access97 before
Converting, but still get the errors. I also created a blank database in
Access 2003 and Import from the Access97 file, but that also gave me errors
and they seemed more significant.
If any one has any info or ideas I would greatly appreciate hearing about them
