OnOpen error in Access 2010

I have an Access Database. I am using VBA to Open Forms, for example,

DoCmd.OpenForm "F_Contact"

This database has been working fine for several days but today I get an error

This error occurs when an event has failed to run because the location of the logic for the event cannot be evaluated. For example, if the OnOpen property of a form is set to =[Field], this error occurs because a macro or event name is expected to run when the event occurs.

See screenshot attached.

Open the VBA code window (CTRL-G).

Click Debug->Compile to compile your application.  This should find and highlight all of the errors in your code.  Fix each error, then try again (Debug->Compile), until it compiles without error.

Do you have code running in the Open or Load event of the form?

You might try Compiling your code. To do that, open the Visual Basic Editor (Ctrl + F11) and click Debug - Compile. Fix any errors, and then Compact your database.
