B tree structure error when deleting local database records

An error saying the B tree structure is invalid appears when I try to delete the records in a local database. I think it might be regarding the corruption of database, but I don't know what it is exactly. Could you please help me solve this or possibly give me a reference point?
B-tree errors can usually be fixed by the standard utilities. Run a compact, updall –R, and fixup against the database from the command prompt. If that doesn't fix it, you can always try making a new copy. This is only an option if you are not replicating the database. If it is local only, a copy could help.
