Below is the query sql.  I was hoping to be able to use the * instead of all those field names:

"SELECT tblCapRequestlMain.ID, tblCapRequestlMain.CapEXID, tblCapRequestlMain.DateOfRequest, tblCapRequestlMain.ProjectName, tblCapRequestlMain.Proj_Nbr, tblCapRequestlMain.Status, tblCapRequestlMain.BusinessUnit, tblCapRequestlMain.Company, tblCapRequestlMain.Dept, tblCapRequestlMain.RequestersFirstName, tblCapRequestlMain.RequestersLastName, tblCapRequestlMain.RequestersTitle, tblCapRequestlMain.RequestersPhone, tblCapRequestlMain.RequestersEmailAddress, tblCapRequestlMain.GateKeeperName, tblCapRequestlMain.GateKeeperPhone, tblCapRequestlMain.GateKeeperEmailAddress, tblCapRequestlMain.Budgeted, tblCapRequestlMain.RequiredByState, tblCapRequestlMain.ApprovedBudgetAmt, tblCapRequestlMain.RequestAmt, tblCapRequestlMain.EstimatedFreightDelivery, tblCapRequestlMain.EstimatedTax, tblCapRequestlMain.StatusChangeDate
FROM tblCapRequestlMain
WHERE tblCapRequestlMain.ID=2"

there is no problem using * in a query


if ID is text Data Type

select *
from tblCapRequestlMain
where ID="2"

or if ID is Number Data type, this should work

select *
from tblCapRequestlMain
where ID=2


just make sure there is a value equal to 2 in the field ID
