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

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;
