I am trying to use the DataSet Designer to get data from an Access

I am trying to use the DataSet Designer to get data from an Access
Database.  The problem I am having is the sytax for my filter
varaibles.

When using SQL Server I was using @OrderID but when I try that with the
DataSet Designer For Access it won't let me.  SO then I tried ?OrderID:


EX:
SELECT        ItemID, OrderID, ProductID, ProductName, ItemNumber,
Quantity, Price
FROM            ItemsOrdered
WHERE        (OrderID = @OrderID)


SELECT        ItemID, OrderID, ProductID, ProductName, ItemNumber,
Quantity, Price
FROM            ItemsOrdered
WHERE        (OrderID = ?OrderID)


Neither of these will work - what syntax should I use?

Your rightm this works:
SELECT        ItemID, OrderID, ProductID, ProductName, ItemNumber,
Quantity, Price
FROM            ItemsOrdered
WHERE        (OrderID = ?)


It just threw me that in the list of methods un thge data designer it doesn't show wha values need to be passed into the method like it does with SQL Server.

Access methods look like this in the deisgner:
FillOrderItemsByOrderID, GetOrderItemsByOrderID

Sql Server methods look like this in the deisgner:
FillOrderItemsByOrderID(@OrderID), GetOrderItemsByOrderID(@OrderID)

Thanks for making me test itout more throughly!!!
