If the Proposal Header is the name of a field or control then put parens around it

What are the values of LinkMaster andn LinkChild properties?

Are they field names or control names?

Your code is trying to reference an object, probably a form/report section, by a name that does not exist in the current scope.
Find the line of code and remove the reference or the line of code, or modify it to the correct object name.

If you are trying to "conditionally" change the Master/Child link fields, rethink this very carefully.  This can cause your report or form to behave irresponsibly.
