Make a backup, then try to Decompile the database first. To do that, create a Shortcut with this as the Target:

"full path to msaccess.exe" "full path to your db" /decompile

Run that shortcut, then try to compile again.

Did you check for missing references?  When you have a missing reference, the first code you execute that requires a library (any library) will fail.

in your vba window

Tools > References

look for library  prefix with MISSING: <name of library>

uncheck this and find the available library with the same name but different version

then do DEBUG >COMPILE

In addition, ...My guess is that perhaps a library may need to be loaded (in addition to a library perhaps being missing)
So you may have to add a reference to the Microsoft DAO object library perhaps...?

Also try it in a tighter syntax:
Dim strSQL as string
Dim dbs as dao.database
Set dbs=CurrentDB()
strSQL="Delete * FROM tblReportSent WHERE ClaimID=" & me.ClaimID
dbs.excecute strSQL, dbFailOnError
