    Showing the properties doesn't really help us to help you. To try and debug an expression (microsoft access can't find the field '|' referred to in your expression.) we really have to see the expression.

    What are you doing when the error pops up? What code (if any) is being run?

    If you know the code involved you should list it here...or better yet...remove any confidential data from you db, zip it up and attach it to a post.

    Linq, those images don't relate to this thread. Poster says they posted in wrong thread. Not even the same poster.
    How to attach file: To provide db: copy, remove confidential data, run compact & repair, zip w/Windows Compression.
