Trying to pull a specific column, using a select statement with a where clause. I know this username kimS is in the row username, but I keep getting the error 'Invalid Column Name'. This is probably so simple that its not funny but Im a newb and this is pissing me off, lol. Thanks for any help available.

FROM  Users Where Username = kimS
