I had a database with several tables, all linked to Excel xlsx files.
It was csv converted to xlxs files from the adfind tool, issue was trying to use a like with wildcard when running vbcript, then I found same issue existinged when I tried to query the database from within access. I am not sure if this was a no primary key issue or something else, however I know that once I imported the data and give a primary key the error didn't return.
SELECT [adfind-users].*, [adfind-smg].proxyAddresses
WHERE ((([adfind-users].proxyAddresses) Like "*math*"));
