Hi, Please give me the SQL  to concatenate the page# with a comma, if the part ID is a duplicate.  in the  examples below, I would like to see widget_001 only display 1 row and to concatenate pages "2" and "10"  as  " 2, 10"  

example of non concatenate:            
      A                     B
1      part_ID      page#
2      widget-001      2
3      widget-001      10
4      widget-002      6`
5      widget-003      50
           
           
desired results:            
      A                   B
1      part_ID      page#
2      widget-001      2, 10
4      widget-002      6`
5      widget-003      50


SELECT C.PART_ID, C.[PAGE #]
FROM C;

Can't be done in Jet SQL.

You have to write code to do the concatenation.

JET SQL = Access SQL.

It can't be done in SQL.

You have to create a function in VBA and use the function in your sql statement.
There is an example with generic code here:
