Well, I took the better option of removing the spaces (Apparently I have more control over the data then I previously had thought). However I'm having an issue trying to parameterize the data...

      Dim qfilter = Request.Form("qfilter").ToString
      Dim q = Request.Form("q").ToString
      Dim db = Database.Open("myConnectionString")
      Dim selectQuery = "SELECT * FROM table_name WHERE @0 = @1"
      For Each row in db.Query(selectQuery,qfilter,q)
          'Code to show results

However I'm not getting any results back....when I output the variables I'm getting the @0 and @1 the way they should be (Payroll and 7748 respectively), however inside the page nothing else is happening.
