Thank you for looking into this!

I have the above query. The problem is that when outputting, the query is not naming the columns. I've done internet research and could not find anything about what I am looking for.

What I really want is, lets take this part


^ Thats a column multiplication within the query (I am multiplying the column * 0.65) But when outputting, the column name comes up as "EXPR005"

Anyway to put in column name before the calculation?

Any help is much appreciated!

Seems you would want this ... one example shown:

CurrentDb.Execute "SELECT INTER.OTCOMBO, INTER.DTCOMBO, INTER.TCOMBO, INTER.SERVICE, INTER.CLASS, INTER.MIN*0.65 AS MyCalc1, INTER.LTL*0.65, INTER.[500]*0.65, INTER.[1M]*0.65, [INTER].[2M]*0.65, [INTER].[5M]*0.65, [INTER].[10M]*0.65, [INTER].[20M]*0.65 INTO Get65 FROM [INTER] WHERE INTER.TCOMBO=" & Chr(34) & termcombo & Chr(34) & " AND INTER.SERVICE=" & Chr(34) & [Forms]![Point2Point]![servicecombo] & Chr(34) & " ORDER BY INTER.CLASS", dbFailOnError
