Error 35001 - Syntax error at '**'

Hi,

as a result of verifying sql-files in a project I got as result an error "35001-Syntax error at '**' ". If I do an double-click on one file the first line is marked. There is in the first line, beginning at column 8 only *** until the end (column 72) !

What is the problem and what can I do?

Thanks
