    Is this a name field?

    If so, I would highly recommend you stop and normalize your data. Your
    first and last names should be stored in separate fields. Then you can
    concatenate them and include a comma and a space.

    Try using replace

    Replace([FieldName],",",", ")

    Thanks for the replace idea, it worked great. I did not want to have to modiy
    over 25,000 records. By the way it was data that I had to import into Access
    in the exact format but just needed a space. Could not normalize the input
    data.

    Thanks again for your assistance.
