It looks like you've got an extra single quote in "Report*'". You can probably see it better below:
If fld.Name Not Like "Report*'" And fld.Name Not Like "Lvl*" And fld.Name Not Like "PRV*" And fld.Name Not Like "CURR*" Then

Open in new window

It's

                If fld.Name Like Not "Report*" And fld.Name Like Not "Lvl*" And fld.Name Like Not "PRV*" And fld.Name Like Not "CURR*" Then

Like Not

But now I get a type mismatch when i run the script
