[AccessD] Compiler doesn’t catch typos in Err?

Friday I spent an hour debugging my error handler for a function I wrote only to realize it was a typo in Err.Description (I typed Err.Decription) so when the Err handler fired it wasn’t firing for my expected trapped error but for the error that the typo produced once the code actually was executed. 

The compiler never caught it. So I decided Err.andjdjskelfo was next. Nope. Didn’t catch it. It doesn’t seem to catch anything invalid you type after the dot? Unusual. 

I tried this on two access 2013 installs. My machine 64-bit and a VM with the 32-bit version. 

Is this a known bug? Am I the only one ?
