Using VB Script to retrieve values from an Access database.  I can use brackets in the sql to wrap around a field with spaces.
When I use the field in the recordset, I get the error.

How do I reference a field with spaces?

One thing you can do is alias the field in the SQL statement:

[FY16 Annual_Target] as Target

Then refer to Target as the field.

Also might want to just try:

rsA("[FY16 Annual_Target]")
