I have a database used to track employee activity and enter their billing.  All of a sudden people are having problems withdates in forms and tables.  I have enter a default date in the table =Date() but all of a sudden it is only appearing on mine and another girls screen.  So I went on the other's computers to try and fix it, I notice that their tables don't pick up the =Date() that I set as the default value in the table.  I fixed it on their forms but then it appears as #Name? in the table, if I fix it in the table it appears as #Name? in the form. I also get the attached error message when I try and enter the default value in the default value of the date field on their computer.  Time & Billing Synapse - The function you entered can't be used in this expression *You may have used a DoEvents, Lbound, Ubound, SPC, or Tab function in an expression
*You may have used a SQL aggregate function, such as Count, in a design grid or in a calculated control field.
Do you know what the message means, how can I fix this database?

It's worth a try to go to the module section, (even if you don't use code) on a computer that has the problem.  Go to tools and references.  write down on a piece of paper all the boxes that are checked.  Then remove all references......  Save the Db. Open back up.   then readd the references.  

Sometimes access loses registry info.  This is usually do to a change such as an upgrade or installation.  It is worth a try!
