OnOpen Expression Error

OnOpen Expression Error

OnOpen Expression Error

Can anyone help?  When I open some reports (Access 2003 SP 2 - File Access 2000 ADP format) I get an error "The expression On Open you entered as the event property setting produced the following error.  *The expression may not result in the name of a macro, the name of a user defined function, or [Event Procedure] *There may have been an error evaluating the function, event or macro"

The code on the report is as follows..

Private Sub Report_Close()
End Sub

Private Sub Report_NoData(Cancel As Integer)
    MsgBox "There is no data for the criteria you have selected.  Please try a different criteria.", vbCritical, "Sorry"
    Cancel = True
End Sub

Private Sub Report_Open(Cancel As Integer)
    Me.lbl_header.Caption = Form_frm_criteria_inventory.txt_header
End Sub

I have multiple reports with the same code that work, but I can't figure out why it the same reports that cause this error.  I have tried to comment out all of the code on the Open event, and it still produces the same error.  

Thank you for anyone that can help,
