Microsoft can't represent the join expression in the design view

Microsoft can't represent the join expression in the design view. I am running Access 2002 sp3

I am getting this message in a lot in queries with multiple joins. I have looked at the explanation for the error, but none of the situations apply. I just rejoin the fields between tables and they work. If I left them out they would not.
Since I have looked for the situations this error says causes this and have not found anything...is there anyone that could shed some light on other causes ?

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Sometimes this can happen if Tables are renamed.  

Also, check Tools>>Options>>General Tab ... and be SURE that 'Name AutoCorrect' is turned OFF.

I know Name AutoCorrect is on.

On the Hot Fix...do I need to do it on each users computer or just the development.

Turn Auto Correct Off for sure - it has be confirmed to be the source of many other 'odd' issues also.
