When using the 'Save as' functionality with a query and then attempting to use a selection based off of the original query, a user may receive Error:  Object reference not set to an instance of an object.
Download and install the latest version and patch, if applicable. 

Work Around:

2.  Re-open the Query and you can now use the selection successfully.
