Invalid use of vertical bars error



I have Office Professional 2003, and kept getting an invalid use of vertical
bar when attempting to look at a query in Design view. I am able to open the
query in SQL view, and it is written with commas, but for some reason when
you switch to Design view the commas get changed to pipes. I download 2007
trial in hopes it wold fix the error. It didn't, and I have tried to open a
couple of queries in the Northwind 2007 example database, for instance the
inventory query, and I get the following error Invalid use of vertical bars
in query expression Nz([Quantity Purchased]|0) Any ideas, I have googled for
an answer and have found nothing.

Thanks in advance.
