I have converted an older ACCESS Database (that someone else created a long time ago) to one in ACCESS 2007.  I am able to make all of the changes that I need except to one place.  When I click the icon to execute the RunAppendQuery to transfer data from one place to another, I get an error message saying that there is an INSERT INTO error for a parameter that is no longer used.  It is looking for the older names of two of the fields that I changed for the new database format.  I have changed every form, table & query that I can open from the Navigation Pane so they all agree.  The changes I made included changing the names of two fields, adding a new field and the labels for them all.

Some of the changes to the forms, etc. are are visible in the MSysQueries table.  But I see a couple of Names and Expressions within the table that still need to change to match the changes made in the rest of the forms, tables, reports and queries in the database.  I have read where someone said that I need to change the code in order to make changes to the MSysQueries table, but in all of the code that I have been able to open, I do not see the old names anywhere to change them to the new names.  I need to know how to access the code to make changes to the MSysQueries table please.

you can not make changes to this table.

what you need to do is to open the query in design/SQL  view

look at the parameters set for the query and /or the parameter at the criteria row
