Hi all,
I have a problem in accessing the excel sheets via ADO using SQL command. If I access the excel sheets using a single word field (e.g. PartNo), I can retrieve the data without problem but if I try to retrieve data using a two word field (e.g. First Name), I will have an exception. Does anyone have any idea how to solve this problem.

select * from pract$ where PartNo is 'A1234'   // this can work

select * from pract$ where First Name is 'John'   // this cannot work

A billion thanks
Rice Cake.

usual you do doublequote the field

select * from pract$ where "First Name" is 'John'  

but it could only be that you must use brackets

select * from pract$ where [First Name] is 'John'
