Microsoft Query on Replicable Access database

I am trying to start Microsoft Query from Excel and connect to an Access 2003 database that is a master replica, but I kept getting a fatal error message "Mircosoft Query has encountered a problem and needs to close."
If I try the same steps but use a non-replica version of the database, it works OK.  Does anybody know if this is a constraint of Microsoft Query and why?

Standby.  I tried a simple database and it worked.  I now need to parse down the complex master replica and see if I can get to a simpler structure that is broken.

In trying to build a simple database, I rebuilt the database and made it a new Master replica and no longer had the problem.
