I can't execute a simple query cause of the freaking column name contains one 'space' character..
It's a dbBase paradox..

I can't rename the column name cause it's being used by another program(delphi i assume) which needs the format "Column Name " and not "Column_Name", else it crashes...

I've tried all of the above ending with error messages.

At all the other columns i can query everything BUT this one with the space is the most importan to me..

--------------------------
*Also i was thinking if i could just query without the Column_Name BUT with let's say the Column_Number(Number order from left to right,Duh :p, the stupid column is the 12th)
But dunno if that's possible.

Link For the db example file "h@@p://rapidshare.com/files/230795199/CYBER6.db"

Anyway
Thanks for reading...
This is my query, as u can see i've tried everything...Or Dunno
