Murray Brown asked

I have a split database Access solution for which I have code that automatically links the front end to the backend. When I run this code I am getting the following error. I do not have a link for the table mentioned. I never created such a table


Watch Question

temp table create by Access.

Probably don't need to worry about it but to be safe
take a copy of your database
and then run a compact and repair.

Tables starting with '~' and 'MSys' are system tables and should be left alone.  Don't mess with them.  Setup your code to jump over (ignore) such tables.

Just like 'f_' tables are used for MVF and shouldn't be messed around with either.

There is a chance you have some corrupted entry...the fast way would be to create a blank database and import everything.
Probably if you investigate the Msys table you should find the entry
