Hash sign in table name problems

I have an Access Database whith a table name that contains a hash sign [BASIC#1]

My SQL statements work well when executed in MS-Query, but when I put the database onto the webserver, I get errors because of the hash sign.  I assume that the hash sign has some special meaning in ODBC or an other layer.
e.g.
SQL = "SELECT * FROM [BASIC#1] WHERE ([BASIC#1].[ID]=" & request.form("ID") & ")"

Is there a way of avoiding this problem - apart from renaming the table?

fast comment..\

try:

SQL = "SELECT * FROM [BASIC##1] WHERE [ID]=" & request.form("ID")

also try to response.write the SQL statement before the execution to see what's in it.. maybe the form field is empty..
