you may need to run the alter statement separately

currentdb.execute _
"alter table [Name of table] alter column [inspection date] long"
currentdb.execute _
"alter table [Name of table] alter column [inspection employee] long"
currentdb.execute _
"alter table [Name of table] alter column [map] Text(255)"

It gives me the error: Expected End of Statement.

Here is the code:
Private Sub Command0_Click()
alter table [MONTHLY_EXTRACT] alter column [insp_dt] long, [insp_emp] long, [mapid_xy] Text(255)
End Sub
