I have a table (Name:"dates" Columns: "Month", "Year")

In query mode, if I choose the table above as the source, how would I create a field that would be a combination of the "Month" and "Year" Fields.

i.e.  Insert this into  a new field in query view----> MonthandYear: [Month]+""+[Year]

In other words how do I make the syntax above work?

if you don't want a space in between

select  [Month],[Year], [Month]&[Year] as MonthAndYear from dates

In SQL server, & doesn't cut it.

Try ...


SELECT CAST(Month AS VarChar) + CAST(Year As VarChar)

So, watch out for portability of any query you write.
