I’m running a query using MS Excel and pulling data from an Access database.  I have how to use the wizard and have very little knowledge of SQL.  I know of a function called “ltrim” and “rtrim”.  These functions remove spaces for the left or the right of the data being queried.  I know that there are other functions such as “ltrim” and “rtrim”.  I just don’t know what they are.  Could someone direct me to a list of all the possible functions and what each function does?

In the back ... there is a great reference appendix ...with functions, macro actions etc:

"Fixing Access Annoyances"
Phil Mitchell and Evan Callahan
O'Reilly

Also ... I would start here:

For information on functions, see

http://www.techonthenet.com

Use the left pane to navigate to various applications for information on functions etc.

I'm sure there are many other such sites.
