Embedded Spaces in Column Names

Question:
I’ve inherited an Access database with embedded spaces in the column names. I use SQL with Visual Basic and want to select these columns and alias them so that I can address the columns in Visual Basic.

For example, I have:

 Select Last Name as LastName From TABLE

How do I address the Column “Last Name”?

Answer:
Try these ideas:

* Enclose the embedded spaces in square brackets: [ ]

* Enclose the embedded spaces with single quotes: ‘ ‘

* Use the “tick mark” under the tilde key as the delimiter: `

Hope these help.
