I have a few commands......Mid and A Left that I need to all come together as one field....  See my text below

Left([Transaction Description],12) & "-" & [Transaction Description],Mid([Transaction Description],InStr([Transaction Description]," ")+1,10) & "-" & Left([Ref1_Ref],6) AS JournalRef

When I have this in access in sql view and then run it....access changes it to

Left([Transaction Description],12) & "-" & [Transaction Description] AS Expr1, Mid([Transaction Description],InStr([Transaction Description]," ")+1,10) & "-" & Left([Ref1_Ref],6) AS JournalRef

I need all three to be together as the JournalRef and not two seperate fields....

Thanks,

Bob

I sometimes miss the really easy syntax issues..............I had to remove a misplaced fieldname [Transaction Description].

I realized my mistake when you showed the example ......

Here is what I really needed.........

Left([Transaction Description],12) & "-" & Mid([Transaction Description],InStr([Transaction Description]," ")+1,10) & "-" & Left([Ref1_Ref],6) AS JournalRef


Thanks so much for your help........I really appreciate it!!!!
