Access 97 - built in functions failing

I am working in Access 97.  When use functions like Format() or Str() in a query, I receive the word ERROR in all of the fields.  How do I fix this?

Have you verified that your references are okay? Open your VB Editor and click Tools - References. If you see any which are marked MISSING, note the name, then uncheck the ref and close the dialog. Now reopen the reference dialog and find and re-check the references you noted earlier.

If you do NOT have any references marked MISSING, you may have some corruption. Try a Compact and Repair operation to see if this solves it (note: make a copy of your database first). Finally, if none of those work, try importing all your objects to a new, blank database container.
