    Question Concatenating all rows in a single column without using pure code! Is it possible!?

    Hi!



    I propose a challenge to Access users out there!

    In Access 2007 is it possible without using code to concatenate all the data from a single column?

    For example imagine this column exists:

    FirstNames
    Jim
    Jack
    Sally
    Fredrick
    Alfi

    I want to run a query that will combine all the first names into a list separated by some delimiter. The query should return a result in a single row and a single column like so:

    DataResult
    Jim~Jack~Sally~Fredrick~Alfi

    Now, if this cannot be done without using code then provide a solution in code is fine as well, but please comment your code so I can understand what in goodness is going on!

    If further clarification is needed please do not hesitate to post!

    Please note this post is posted on multiple forums.


    Thank you all! : )


    Cordially,

    Counterpoint
