    Thumbs down concatenate multiple record field values into a single field

    I'm struggling with this, essentially what I want to do is this:

    In a table of items and program no's there may be multiple records that have different program no's because they are made on different machines

    Item Prog
    1234 1234P1
    1234 1234P2
    1234 1234P3

    In a report for a single Item I want to concatenate the three possible program No's into a single field 1234P1,1234P2, 1234P3

    Any ideas please

    Thanks

    Review http://allenbrowne.com/func-concat.html

    How many possible programs for each item? Maybe a CROSSTAB:

    TRANSFORM First(Table1.Prog) AS FirstOfProg
    SELECT Table1.Item
    FROM Table1
    GROUP BY Table1.Item
    PIVOT Right([Prog],2) IN (P1,P2,P3);

    Or this version:

    TRANSFORM First(Table1.Prog) AS FirstOfProg
    SELECT Table1.Item
    FROM Table1
    GROUP BY Table1.Item
    PIVOT DCount("*","Table1","Item='" & [Item] & "' AND Prog<'" & [Prog] & "'")+1;

    Apologies for lengthy reply time, currently off work after having a new knee

    The function by Allen Browne that you guided me to, did exactly what I wanted to do.

    Thanks so much for your help

    Very much appreciated

    Best
