No valid field name was found before the first valid operator in the Find statement or the selection specification of the IFFIND function. If a Find statement produced the message, compilation continues but the request is not executed. If an IFFIND function produced the message, the function returns a code of 4.

Response: Check the field name in the Find statement or the specification of the IFFIND function for correct spelling. If the spelling is wrong, correct and retry. If it is correct, consult Reserved words and characters or Rules for naming fields for the reserved word list. See if the field name is a reserved word. If it is, use quotation marks around the reserved word(s) and retry.
