I'm building a view in MS SQL 2005 that will be used to import data to an access database.  I can pull everthing I need but the sales persons name in access is one field not two so I need to concatenate the fields SPFIrstName and SPLastname.  I know it should be something like dbo.users.SPFirstName + " " + dbo.users.SFLastName as SPName but that isn't working in the select statement.  What am I doing wrong?
