MS Access 2019 error 3340 Query is corrupt

Last Modified: 2019-11-23
I have an application where I run some simple sql execute statements.  here is an example of one:

currentdb.execute "Update databasebuttons set pagecaption = 'Agency Evaluation',buttonlabel ='Agency Evaluation' where Buttonnum = 1001",dbseechanges

This syntax has worked fine in Access versions 2007 through 2016.  Now in Access version 2019 it throws the error 3340 "Query is corrupt"

What's the deal?   What is the solution to resolve the issue where this will continue to work in 2019 but also work in 2017 - 2016 version?
