The column 'rec retail' has a space in, the parser does not recognise this so shows the error.

Try this
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. select barcode,current, [rec retail], sellPrice from products

That is another problem. The error message you are getting (Please post it in the body of the question in future) indicates that Current is a reserved word (Keyword) and should not generally be reused as a field name. If you have a table with it then you should use the following syntax :
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. SELECT [BarCode]
  2.      , [Current]
  3.      , [Rec Retail]
  4.      , [SellPrice]
  5. FROM   [Products]
