Access 2007 - alias not showing in query

Hi experts,

I have an access database hooked up to some sharepoint lists. When I query on the ID field in the projects list, like this:

Select Projects.ID As [Project ID]

the query's column heading is "ID", but I wanted to assign the alias [Project ID]. If I query on this new query, I can select newquery.[Project ID] but the column heading is still "ID"!

How can I make the colum heading show my desired alias???

Thanks :)

Hi,

Your syntax is correct.  YOur query is possibly corrupt.  Delete and rebuild the query from scratch.

Regards,

Bill

I think there is a display name property in Sharepoint lists- maybe that is overriding the alias just as the Caption property would on a field defined in Access?
