Each group by expression must contain at least one column that is not an outer reference

I have a query (see code below), but when I run the query, I get the following error:

"Each group by expression must contain at least one column that is not an outer reference"

What is causing this?  This wasn't an issue until I upgraded to MS Office 2010/Access 2010 and Windows 7.

SELECT tblEmployee_Audits.InquiryNum, tblEmployee_Audits.Employee, tblEmployee_Audits.Manager_Name, tblEmployee_Audits.Quality_Review_Date, tblEmployee_Audits.Auditor_Name, tblEmployee_Audits.Scorecard, tblEmployee_Audits.Department, tblEmployee_Audits.Region, tblEmployee_Audits.System, tblEmployee_Audits.Audit_Date, tblEmployee_Audits.Audit_Status, First(tblEmployee_Audits.Audit_Notes) AS FirstOfAudit_Notes, tblEmployee_Audits.Action_Required, tblEmployee_Audits.Action_REQ_Reason, tblEmployee_Audits.Date_Entered, tblEmployee_Audits.Completed_Date, First("") AS txtAuditStatus, tblEmployee_Audits.Sub_AuditType INTO tblAudits_ForEmail
FROM tblEmployee_Audits
GROUP BY tblEmployee_Audits.InquiryNum, tblEmployee_Audits.Employee, tblEmployee_Audits.Manager_Name, tblEmployee_Audits.Quality_Review_Date, tblEmployee_Audits.Auditor_Name, tblEmployee_Audits.Scorecard, tblEmployee_Audits.Department, tblEmployee_Audits.Region, tblEmployee_Audits.System, tblEmployee_Audits.Audit_Date, tblEmployee_Audits.Audit_Status, tblEmployee_Audits.Action_Required, tblEmployee_Audits.Action_REQ_Reason, tblEmployee_Audits.Date_Entered, tblEmployee_Audits.Completed_Date, tblEmployee_Audits.Sub_AuditType
HAVING (((tblEmployee_Audits.InquiryNum)=[Forms]![frmEmployee_Audits]![InquiryNum]));

Can you post a sample database?  DO NOT INCLUDE REAL DATA!

I don't believe the parenthesis are necessary.  Try the following:
HAVING tblEmployee_Audits.InquiryNum = [Forms]![frmEmployee_Audits]![InquiryNum];

Aiello,

It's just to difficult to provide the database because there are too many tables that are being used in all the queries/reports that contain confidential data.

I did try your suggestion about the parenthesis and the HAVING statement that you provided, but it didn't make a difference.  Do you or anyone else have any further suggestions that I can try.

As I mentioned before, this wasn't an issue until I upgraded to Windows 7 and Office 2010.

Thanks,

I ended up doing a Dlookup for the Memo field, and that worked.

Thanks everyone for your assistance.
