How can I change the syntax to get this to run:

SELECT shrcode, shrfirm, shrdiv * shrqty AS [Max's Total Dividend]
     FROM shr;

It says there is an error at [ ... this runs in MS Access.

I've tried
SELECT shrcode, shrfirm, shrdiv * shrqty AS "Max's Total Dividend"
     FROM shr;

but this doesn't work either in MySQL

Try
SELECT shrcode, shrfirm, shrdiv ,shrqty AS 'Max''s Total Dividend'     FROM shr
OR
SELECT shrcode, shrfirm, shrdiv ,shrqty AS 'Max\'s Total Dividend'
     FROM shr

Table names, column names, and aliases are considered identifiers. The identifier quote character is the backtick (“`”). So try:
SELECT shrcode, shrfirm, shrdiv * shrqty AS `Max's Total Dividend`
     FROM shr;
