How do you "Concatenate" text fields in a query expression???

Hi,

Does anyone know how to concatenate text fields in an access query?
For example, if I have two fields - field1 and field2 I would like to be able to use something like Excel's function: =Concatenate([Field1],[field2]).

Please help.
Thank you,
Jen

you may also wish to do something like this

Select field1 + ', ' + field2
from yourtablehere

This would add a comma and space between the fields    the & will also work instead of the +
