The Concat() function would be Concat(Name, ' ', Firstname) the column names are not in brackets in standard SQL. This will work with MySQL/MariaDB - I am copying it out a book.

For the second line [NAME] + " " + [FIRSTNAME] try [NAME] + ' ' + [FIRSTNAME] often ' are used to denote a string not ".

I have a mdb file and i want to use it with LibreOffice so I need to "translate" all the macro, form ... for LibreOffice.

But i have some difficult to do it.

For example, how to concatenate 2 field in my SQL Request.

I have tried :

- [NAME] + [FIRSTNAME] , ok but i need an espace
- [NAME] + " " + [FIRSTNAME] , doesn't work
- LTRIM( coalesce( "NAME", '' ) || ' ' || "FIRSTNAME" ) , doesn't work
- "NAME" || ' ' || "FIRSTNAME", doesn't work
- CONCAT( [NAME], [FIRSTNAME] ), doesn't work

How i can make it ???

Thanks for your help.

If someone could help me to "translate" the file, it would be nice
