Cannot find the source of compact & repair error "Not a Valid File Name"

I have a simple database that I have been using as essentially a telephone directory for remote colleagues. I create queries on the fly for different filters.  I import new updated tables monthly and the application is over a year old.  This is probably the first time I have attempted to compact in over a year.

Table and query objects

Any ideas?
