    Repeating rows in a query

    Hi,

    I am attempting to perform a normalization process in a query where an organization would be operating in several different states and different countries. I have created three tables where: one table is Organization, second table is Country, and the third table is State. I made a table to record: Organization ID, Country ID and State ID. An organization could have 1 or more countries while having no US states. Also the organization could have 1 or more countries while having 1 or more US states.

    What I am seeing is in my query is:



    Organization | Country | State
    Organization | Country | State
    Organization | Country |

    What I am wanting to see is:

    Organization | Country, Country, Country | State, State

    In the end, I want to make a mail merge from this query table.

    How can I 'normalize' the query?

    Thanks!

    AFAIK, what you want is NOT a normalized dataset and is actually denormalization.

    I've never used Access/Word mail merge but have known users to have problems with calculated fields.
