    pretty close - your reference to 'grid' and the construction of the table name implies this is not access sql. In access it would be referred to as a view or a query

    For bonus marks, tell the exam writer than as a field name, "Name" sucks because it's a reserved word.
    Then again, maybe not quite in that terminology...
