    I have a field called UserName in a query, this is in the form of
    Firstname.Surname, i have concatenated my FirstName and LastName together by
    using:

    UserName: [tbl_StaffDetails].[FirstName]&[tbl_StaffDetails].[LastName]

    How do i get the . (dot) inbetween the firstname and lastname?

    Any help again wopuld be appreciated
