Strange Microsoft Access Error on ADP project (Sql Server 2005 Extended Properties)

Today I got a very strange error on my Microsoft Access ADP Project.


Microsoft Office Access can't find the object 'SELECT *, sql_variant_property(value, 'basetype') AS type FROM ::fn_litextendedproperty(N'MS_DisplayViewsOnSharePointSite', N'user', N'dbo', N'table', N'TableName', NULL, NULL)'.

To be honest, I had no idea what this meant.  Neither the explanation followed by this error.
After thinking a little while, I found the solution.

Earlier today I tried to add a database schema.  And deleted it afterwards. 

If you look at the tables changed by the database schema, and the tables which where not involved, the only difference are the Extended Properties on the tables.  The tables with extended properties will also give this error in Microsoft Access 2007.  For the record, I am using SQL Server 2005 for this project.

The solution

What you need to do: open the table properties in Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio.
Then go the extended properties. 



When I deleted the MS_Filter, MS_OrderBy my problem was gone.
