Hi x-perts,

I cannot figure out a syntax error (missing operator) on the second LEFT JOIN

what is wrong here?

Thanks
SELECT Funds.[Fund ID], Funds.[Fund Name], MID(Funds.[Fund Name], 1, 1) As F FROM Funds 
LEFT JOIN Quant1 ON (Quant1.[Fund ID] = Funds.[Fund ID]) 
LEFT JOIN Betas ON (Quant1.[Fund ID]=Betas.[Fund ID]) 
WHERE Funds.[open To Investment] = 'Yes' AND Betas.[MSCI in $] BETWEEN -0.08 AND 0.04

please try this (adding a couple of brackets)
SELECT Funds.[Fund ID], Funds.[Fund Name], MID(Funds.[Fund Name], 1, 1) As F 
FROM (Funds LEFT JOIN Quant1 ON (Quant1.[Fund ID] = Funds.[Fund ID])  )
LEFT JOIN Betas ON (Quant1.[Fund ID]=Betas.[Fund ID]) 
WHERE (Funds.[open To Investment] = 'Yes' AND Betas.[MSCI in $] BETWEEN -0.08 AND 0.04))

Thank you! It works fine, though I cannot understand the error...  I have seen a lot of references with plain

LEFT JOIN Quant1 ON (Quant1.[Fund ID] = Funds.[Fund ID])
LEFT JOIN Betas ON (Quant1.[Fund ID]=Betas.[Fund ID])

etc in a row

ms access is picky about the brackets...
ms sql server does not require any brackets in that context.
