    Unanswered: Invalid Argument Error

    Please help!

    I am running into a problem when trying to run a basic design query. In design view, I set up my query and it runs fine. But, when I try to save the query, I get an error box stating "Invalid Argument". I have looked in the help file, but it suggests 2 potential issues - 1 is a Regional Settings problem, the other has something to do with data settings. I really dont think I have an issue with either of these. Any suggestions on fixing this.

    Thanks,

    Todd

    I'm not sure if it matters, but the tables that I am running the query off of are quite large (700+ meg).

    open the query in design view then use the left-most command bar drop-down thingie to switch to SQL view (or menu: View/SQL if you prefer)

    copy/paste the SQL here.

    most likely we will also need to know the datatype of everything after the WHERE in the SQL.
