It would help if you provide the whole query. Most likely the '0' before the '[' is not required, like this:
ProblemLogSearch.[OccurenceDate at Customer]

Open in new window

The 0 following the . before the bracket is not valid.

Maybe it should be:

ProblemLogSearch.[OccurenceDate at Customer]

Open in new window

What are you doing when the error occurs? You can generally track down the culprit by following your code.

To do that, set a breakpoint in the code, then "run" the process that causes the error. When Access hits that breakpoint, you'll be thrown into the Code Editor window, and you can use the Debug commands to move through your code.

To set a breakpoint, open the code window and place your cursor in the line of code where you wish to set the breakpoint. Press the F9 key. The line will be highlighted in Red.

When you reach the breakpoint, you can "step through" your code by pressing the F8 key. This moves you one line at a time. When you hit the line that causes the error, you'll see that error message.

Here's a good article about debugging in Access: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/108438

ProblemLogSearch is most likely a table. There is a VBA code somewhere that has this error. If your data is not sensitive, or you can remove the data, you can try to upload your database here.

I've requested that this question be deleted for the following reason:

The database was missing many items. I found it easier to start over. When I did the problem in this question was resolved.
