  • This is a painful one. basically, one of your columns in that site collection is not defined properly anymore, and you have to figure out which one it is so you can try to correct it at the site collection level.

    If you have custom columns, check them all.  One way is to go to any list that has custom columns and try to view it in the browser, you may get this exception. You can check the logs for it as well under 12/Template/logs

    If you installed these custom columns via feature, you may have to make sure no features changed and reenable the feature with stsadm,

    You may find FeatureAdmin or SharePoint Manager (both from codeplex) useful tools as well
