Please use code tags when posting code.

When you use non-standard characters in the name of a field, you need to demarcate them as such with square brackets. If you have anything other than letters, numbers, and underscores, then it's a nonstandard character.

Therefore, when referring to Day/Parttime, you need to use [Day/Parttime].

Also, if you use reserved key words, such as Year or Month or Left, you may also need to demarcate them.
