You could try stepping through the code on the form's Open event, and see if any specific line of code triggers the error.

I have been working on the Access dbase using some of the suggestions provided.  The following code is still not functional. I am unable to load the dbase (very exploded, large file) onto the site.  The dbase is loaded with old DoCMD.OpenForm code.  I believe the issue may be resulting in the condition " If Project count<>0 " based on John's observation.  This condition may not be necessary to open each of the types of forms listed.  Does this sound plausible as a solution.
