"Compile: Error: Automation Error"

Microsoft Access 97 Project near completion BUT:

Getting an error suddenly:

"Compile Error, Automation Error".  

Throws us into debug mode and highlights this code:

"dbs As Database".

Full code for combo box "notinlist" action:
===================================
Private Sub Church_Aff_Combobox_NotInList(NewData As String, Response As Integer)
    Dim intAnswer As Integer
    Dim dbs As Database, rst As Recordset
   
    intAnswer = MsgBox("Add " & NewData & " to the list of Church Affiliations?", vbQuestion + vbYesNo)
   
    If intAnswer = vbYes Then
        Rem Add church affiliation stored in Newdata argument to the Valid_Church_Affiliations table
        Set dbs = CurrentDb
        Set rst = dbs.OpenRecordset("Valid_Church_Affiliations")
        rst.AddNew
        rst!Church_Affiliation = NewData
        rst.Update
        Response = acDataErrAdded         'Requery the combo box list
    End If
End Sub
=======================================
Very confused on this one as the error does not occur on an earlier more simpler version of the package we are developing which DOES contain the notinlist action subroutine above but not a lot of other stuff we added later.  Any help appreciated.  Thanks in advance.

Just a thought:
Make sure there is a reference to Microsoft DAO:
  Select Menu Option Project/References
  Check one of the many Microsoft DAO versions (best choice for me is 2.5/3.5 Compatibility Library)

Try repair/compact on the MDB as well. If this does not work, copy the form to a new name and see if it works. If not, try importing all the objects into a new MDB.
