    Question Unanswered: Keywords?

    I have read somewhere that MS Access has keywords such as GIVING and PROJECT.

    However MS Access (2007) refuses to identify such keywords.

    Would anyone know how to use either of these?

    I don't know for sure in Access 2007 but in the previous versions of Access there are several reserved words that Access does not actually use. This is specially true for several words that are part of the SQL language corpus.

    Have a nice day!

    Neither of these are Reserved Words (keywords) in Access, versions 2000-2007.
    They could be the name of custom functions in a database, I suppose.
    Hope this helps!

    "PROJECT" certainly is not a reserved word or "keyword".

    Having searched Access, Visual Basic, VB.Net, C++, Cobol, Fortan and several incarnations of SQL, I found Project in no Reserved Word list and Giving on the lsit for Cobol. As I said before, my guess would be that these words were used as the user defined names of something, possibly functions.
    Hope this helps!
