  SELECT tblClient.WorkFileNo, tblActBal.DateEntry, tblClient.FirstName, tblClient.SurName,
  tblDebit.LoanAmt, tblDebit.IntAmt, tblDebit.Penalty, tblDebit.AdminFees, tblDebit.MOF
  tblDebit.Refund, tblDebit.fns, tblCredit.Repayment, tblCredit.IntRebate, tblCredit.PenaltyRebate,
  tblCredit.RateDiff, tblCredit.Overpayment, tblDebit.Description, tblActBal.ActualBalance
  FROM tblClient INNER JOIN tblCredit INNER JOIN tblDebit INNER JOIN tblActBal
  ON tblClient.WorkFileNo = tblCredit.WorkFileNo ON tblClient.WorkFileNo = tblDebit.WorkFileNo
        ON tblClient.WorkFileNo = tblActBal.WorkFileNo

I belive the ON clause should come after every join..

FROM tblClient INNER JOIN tblCredit ON tblClient.WorkFileNo = tblCredit.WorkFileNo INNER JOIN tblDebit ON tblClient.WorkFileNo = tblDebit.WorkFileNo INNER JOIN tblActBal ON tblClient.WorkFileNo = tblActBal.WorkFileNo

You are missing a comma after tblDebit.MOF.

Rewrite yuor query as this


SELECT tblClient.WorkFileNo,
FROM tblClient
INNER JOIN tblCredit ON tblCredit.WorkFileNo = tblClient.WorkFileNo
INNER JOIN tblDebit ON tblDebit.WorkFileNo = tblClient.WorkFileNo
INNER JOIN tblActBal ON tblActBal.WorkFileNo = tblClient.WorkFileNo
