How to corret this mysql select query?

P: n/a
hi, all
I convert some code from access to mysql. And I have a InboxMessage
table which has From and To field.
So, the query is like:
select * from InboxMessage where To=12
12 is user id.
This query works fine in access. But does not work in Mysql.
I think the problem is the field To, which must be a keyword in mysql.
So, how to fix this? I don't want to change the field, becuase this
will need to change a lot of code.
Thanks and have a great day!

to is indeed a reserved word for mysql. Reserved words can be enclosed in
back-ticks (not apostrophes) to use them as column names, so your query
would be:

select * from InboxMessage where `To`=12
