Quote Syntax Error

Question:
I’m trying to delete a set of records in a table attached to a data control by using an SQL statement like the following:

MergeRec.Data1.Database.Execute “DELETE Patient Visit WHERE id = ‘” & PatientName & “‘”
It’s generating a syntax error. Do you see something wrong with it?

Answer:
I believe the syntax is:

 DELETE FROM [Patient Visit] where id = ‘” &PatientName & “‘”  
If your table name has spaces in it, it has to be enclosed in brackets.
