Getting LinkMasterFields property setting error

Last Modified: 2013-11-27
I have an error that is created when I try to edit a sub form. There complete error is:  The LinkMasterField property setting has producted this error. 'The object doesn't contain the Automation object 'J'."  

What does this mean and where do I look to fix it? It will not allow me to enter any data in the subform.  It just beeps and gives me the error.

This problem is connected to the Inspections database that I have been working with and is connected to the coding that I have been using.  The Main code brings in the main form and is attached in the first attached code (which I have attached my last post).  

The subform is an area where the supervisor assigns weekly tasks to the sales staff, and then checks off the work when it is completed. At the completion of all the work, the inspection job is closed for the term (my previous post that is also open and currently being worked on).  

Here's the query for the subform:  SELECT WeeklySalesMeeting_tbl.JobID, WeeklySalesMeeting_tbl.MeetingDate, Jobs.JobNo, WeeklySalesMeeting_tbl.Comments, WeeklySalesMeeting_tbl.ActionRequired, WeeklySalesMeeting_tbl.AssignedTo, WeeklySalesMeeting_tbl.DateTaskCompleted, WeeklySalesMeeting_tbl.ActionTaken, WeeklySalesMeeting_tbl.TaskCompleted

FROM Jobs INNER JOIN WeeklySalesMeeting_tbl ON Jobs.JobID = WeeklySalesMeeting_tbl.JobID

WHERE (((Jobs.JobNo) Not In ("INSPECTIONS")) AND ((WeeklySalesMeeting_tbl.TaskCompleted)=0))

ORDER BY WeeklySalesMeeting_tbl.MeetingDate DESC , Jobs.JobNo;

Thanks for your help.

I hope this makes sense.
FROM Jobs AS J INNER JOIN Inspections_data_tbl AS I ON J.JobID = I.JobID
WHERE (((IIf(Month(Now())=1,[Jan],IIf(Month(Now())=2,[Feb],IIf(Month(Now())=3,[Mar],IIf(Month(Now())=4,[April],IIf(Month(Now())=5,[May],IIf(Month(Now())=6,[Jun],IIf(Month(Now())=7,[Jul],IIf(Month(Now())=8,[Aug],IIf(Month(Now())=9,[Sep],IIf(Month(Now())=10,[Oct],IIf(Month(Now())=11,[Nov],IIf(Month(Now())=12,[Dec],False)))))))))))))=True) AND ((J.InspectionCompleted)=0) AND ((J.JobStatusID)In (1,3,4,5,7,8))) ORDER BY J.JobNo;
