Error: Multi Part Identifier Could Not Be Bound

I am trying to run a query 'buildProd_TaxYear_IncludingBalances' in an Access program where some of the information is being pulled from SQL Server tables.  This query ran fine when I got pulled off of this project a month ago.  As far as I know, there were no DB or application changes while it was idle.

I am back on the project, running thru some of the processes to make sure all is well.  That's when I discovered that the query will no longer run.

I get a message box with the the text '[MIcrosoft][ODBC SQl Server Driver][SQL Server] The multipart identifier' dbo.field name could not be bound (#4104), with dbo.fieldname being one of the fields in the real query.  The message is repeated for each selected field name filling up the message box.
What is most confusing to me is that the query worked prior to this.  I had run it many times.  In playing around with the query it seems as though if I eliminate three of the six left joined fields, the query runs but of course does not yield the result I want.

Here is the entire Query:
SELECT 
buildProd_TaxYear.RecordType, 
buildProd_TaxYear.TaxAuthorityID, 
buildProd_TaxYear.PropertyID, 
buildProd_TaxYear.MuniCode, 
buildProd_TaxYear.OldControlNumber, 
buildProd_TaxYear.LotBlock, 
buildProd_TaxYear.TieBreaker, 
buildProd_TaxYear.TaxYear, 
buildProd_TaxYear.TaxTypeID, 
buildProd_TaxYear.Full_Int_Add_TypeID, 
buildProd_TaxYear.SequenceNo, 
buildProd_TaxYear.PaidFlag, 
buildProd_TaxYear.InterstStart_IntAdd_Date, 
buildProd_TaxYear.OrigFaceAmtDue, 
buildProd_TaxYear.Rec7_LienAmt, 
buildProd_TaxYear.SoldFlag, 
Balance_Work.SoldFlag AS BalSoldFlag, 
buildProd_TaxYear.SatByCounty, 
buildProd_TaxYear.PaidToCounty, 
Balance_Work.BlockLot AS BalanceLB, 
Balance_Work.EnterDate, 
Balance_Work.IntDate, 
Balance_Work.FaceBal, 
Balance_Work.IntBal, 
Balance_Work.PltyBal, 
Balance_Work.CostBal, 
Balance_Work.CommBal, 
Balance_Work.BalDueWithoutExpenses, 
Balance_Work.PostageExpenses, 
Balance_Work.AttyFees, 
Balance_Work.RecordCosts, 
Balance_Work.BalDueWithExpenses

FROM buildProd_TaxYear LEFT JOIN Balance_Work ON 

(buildProd_TaxYear.TieBreaker = Balance_Work.TieBreaker) AND 
(buildProd_TaxYear.SequenceNo = Balance_Work.SequenceNo) AND 
(buildProd_TaxYear.Full_Int_Add_TypeID = Balance_Work.Full_Int_Add_TypeID) AND 
(buildProd_TaxYear.LotBlock = Balance_Work.BlockLot) AND 
(buildProd_TaxYear.TaxYear = Balance_Work.Year) AND 
(buildProd_TaxYear.TaxTypeID = Balance_Work.TaxType);

Is anybody familiar with this error that might be able to point me in the direction of the issue?

Even though you think the table hasn't been changed, try refreshing the link.

Wow and thanks.  I thought I had refreshed the links but did so again at your suggestion and the query is working.

Thanks so much.
