Hello,

I am creating  schema.in'si based on  table's.  I just realized that they have spaces in some of the field names.  How can I fix the following code (courtesy of Microsoft) to accomidate spaces.  I know I need to have quotes around the columnName but nothing I have tried work.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!!

Option Compare Database
Option Explicit
 Public Function CreateSchemaFile(bIncFldNames As Boolean, _
                                       sPath As String, _
                                       sSectionName As String, _
                                       sTblQryName As String) As Boolean
         Dim Msg As String ' For error handling.
         On Local Error GoTo CreateSchemaFile_Err
         Dim ws As Workspace, db As Database

         Dim tblDef As TableDef, fldDef As Field
         Dim i As Integer, Handle As Integer
         Dim fldName As String, fldDataInfo As String, fldCaption As String
         ' -----------------------------------------------
         ' Set DAO objects.

         ' Open schema file for append.

         Handle = FreeFile
         Open sPath & "schema.ini" For Output Access Write As #Handle
         ' -----------------------------------------------
         ' Write schema header.

         Print #Handle, "Format = TabDelimited"

         Set tblDef = db.TableDefs(sTblQryName)

How about another delimiter (like a comma) instead of the Space$(1) ?

Thank you but that did not work.  I need fldName to be created so that if the Field name is Last Name it comes out "Last Name" in the schema.ini.

Ok,


Print #Handle, "Col" & Format$(i + 1) _
             & "=""" & fldName & """"_
             & Space$(1) _
             & fldDataInfo
