    I am using below mentioned query to get the data from table.

    SELECT *
    FROM [Employee Directory]
    WHERE ((([Employee Directory].[Dept])='Services'))
    ORDER BY [Full Name];

    In the original table, I have 13 columns.
    How do I get only 4-5 required column from this table.

    How do I edit this query.
    For example, I need columns Full Name, DOB, Dept, and DOJ how do I do this.

    Can anyone please help me in this.

    I think, replace select * with

    select [Employee Directory].[Full Name],
    [Employee Directory].[DOB],
    [Employee Directory].[Dept],
    [Employee Directory].[DOJ]

    Perhaps it also needs a comma at the end. Actually do not remember that detail.

    or even simply
    select [Full Name],
