That might happen that some objects are using illegal characters in their names, read this MS article for similar simptoms. That might also happen that this script/program creates such names while it is running and then you do see these messages upon exit.

 

Check the naming of Macros/procedures/tables/queries etc for illegal characters (it's better if they are all ascii). Tell me if you have some odd names.

 

Another possible reason is your .mdb file corruption. It may be physically corrupted because of failing disk, bugs in software etc.

 

 

Regards,

Arty
