ERROR: [ODBC Microsoft Access Driver]COUNT field incorrect

I am writing a conversion to convert approx 130 access databases to SQL.  I have already created my SQL db, build the application for the front end and have converted a few of the databases on a "1 at a time" basis.  To expedite the process, I have created a dynamic conversion.  Items involved are a table listing all of the access dbs that need converted, 2 sql statements needed to pull the necessary data to convert and the location of the db.  It works perfectly until I use the 2nd sql statement.  I am getting an ODBC error: COUNT field incorrect.  The baffling part is that I am not returning a count, and I am opening it in a recordset, so there is no mismatch of values & variables, or anything like that.  I know that it isn't my connection because the first statement (to the same db using the same connection) works fine.  

I cannot find ANY information anywhere within Microsofts "help" sites.  Please, if anyone has any ideas, please share.  This has been a 7 month project and is due to go live next Monday.  Without data, I'm hosed!  
Thank you so much!

Note: the ID is being attatched dynamically in the active server page.  
This is the "full" statement as displayed by a response.write in the application page:
Select [Invite Sent] as InviteSent, [Date Travel Form Rec'd] as TravelFormRcvd, [Arrival Date] as Arrival, [Depature Date] as Depature, [Date Survey Rec'd?] as SurveyRcvd, [Date Agreement Rec'd?] as AgreementRcvd, [Date Expense Report] as ExpenseRptRcvd, Attended, Comments, [Photo #] as PhotoNum, [Confirmation Sent Date] as CPacketSent, [Invitation Accepted] as InviteAccept, Guest1 as GuestName FROM Participants WHERE ID = 1

I have chopped this down by taking out many of the variables and adding back in one at a time.  It works fine until the 5th one is added to the statement.

I should also note that I have copied this right off of the response.write and ran it in the associated Access database and it executes without a problem.

Thank you!!!!!!!

how are you opening the db's? are you linking to each table in each tb dynamically or are you "opening" each db through automation?

if you are using automation, are you sure that you're setting the db reference to nothing and closing it before resetting it? such as:

Dim a As Database

Set a = Workspaces(0).OpenDatabase("c:\a.mdb", , False)
a.close
Set a = Nothing

(assuming a reference to DAO or similar)

if you are linking the tables dynamically, how are you linking them? specific code would be nice to see.

if OTHER, what is the process you're following? can you outline it / post some code snippits???

cheers,

If you leave out the 5th select does it work?
Maybe the problem is with [date ........]
Try a select on [date ........] if this doesn't work try copying the database and renaming the [date .......] column and the do a select on the new column name again.

It doesn't solve your problem of converting 130 databases but than you know where the problem is.
