    Export to Excel: Merge different entries of the same ID of Access-Query into one Cell in Excel-Sheet

    Hello guys,

    I established a connection from my MS Access DB to an Excel-File and want to open it via a Button with VBA. That works.
    I want to export some queries from MS Access to Excel (this also worked fine so far) but here is my problem:

    The queries have multiple recordsets with the same ID from a table (that has been selected so it is included in the query). It kind of looks like this:

    ID = 1, Entry 1 BUT I want to have it automatically changed in the Excel-Sheet so that it looks like this:
    ID = 1, Entry 2
    ID = 1, Entry 3


    ID = 2, Entry 4
    ID = 2, Entry 5
    ID = 2, Entry 6

    ...

    BUT I want to have it automatically changed in the Excel-Sheet so that it looks like this (all entries in one cell, so that ID is only shown once). I Also want to merge several appropiately changed queries in registers to one Excel-register that matches with the same ID. Is there a problem to that?

    ID = 1, Entry 1
    Entry 2
    Entry 3
    ID = 2, Entry 4
    Entry 5
    Entry 6

    I'd be grateful for all helpful advise Thank you guys, you are doing a tremendous work!

    You can use one of the concatenation functions available, I like theDBGuy's SimpleCSV (http://www.accessmvp.com/thedbguy/co...itle=simplecsv) as seems the fastest but you can also try Allen's (http://allenbrowne.com/func-concat.html) or have a look at modJoinFromArray on my website (http://forestbyte.com/vba-code-samples/). Use vbCrLf as the delimiter so Entry 1, Entry 2 will be on new lines inside the Excel cell.

    Thank you, I solved my problem I used the Excel function to Custom a List and used the Code "Table.Column" to write all values that matches the same ID into a customed List. And then, I used a line break which you can select as a delimiter
    I've been on this forum a while now and I just wanted to provide you guys with the source video that helped me.
