Hi,
I get a compile error when trying to execute this query:
SELECT Mid([Location Name],10,4) AS Branch
FROM Receives;
The [Location Name] = US BANK #0585 WRIGLEY BUILDING
Let me know what it can be.
Thank you

Hi lnchopo,
There does not seem to be anything wrong with your query statement. Is it possible that your table actually stores the Location ID # in [Location Name] instead of the text name of the Location, and it is using a lookup to ge the text name?

I tried to duplicate your error, however the query works fine.  

Are you getting the error when you run a query or are you running code using the SQL statement to produce the results?

I was able to adjust the raw data before I have to work with it. Sorry for the late response.
