Does anyone know the correct syntax for this:

SELECT  [Col a] AS [a], [Col b],
            name, SELECT SUM(amountTime) FROM myUps AS Expr1 .......


I have tried putting square brackets around the SELECT SUM(...  but that did not work either.

A split would be more appropriate.

hongjun, my sql is very similar to yours, the only visible difference that I can see is Name. I had wrapped it in square brackets because NAME itself is a reserved word in MS Access. Its not to say the SQL wont work without them, Im just saying that is a possibility.

I meant to split it, sorry - I selected the wrong two comments - my apologies.  Working with Acces is making me very stressed out,  oh how I miss the comfort of SQL Server

You should post a zero-point question in http://www.experts-exchange.com/Community_Support/ and state you decision to amend the split. A moderator / admin will reopen this question.

You should not be posting a new question.
