I am trying to create an Access report that will "concatenate" the comments for each unique [WUpID] in my Query. The problem is, I can't use the CONCATENATE function because (as I understand it) you can only return 255 characters total - there will be times when my Comments will exceed 255 characters. I need the end result to look like the attached picture - with each comment stacked on top of each other in the same field.
Below is my existing Query. Is there a way that I can have it roll-up my [Comments] from the tbl_WeeklyUpdateDetail for each unique [WUpdID] field? Should I be doing this on the report side rather than in a query?
SELECT tbl_WeeklyCategory.CategoryName, tbl_WeeklyCategory.WCatID, tbl_WeeklyUpdate.WeeklyUpdName, tbl_WeeklyUpdateDetail.Comment, tbl_WeeklyUpdateDetail.FinalizedDate, tbl_WeeklyUpdateDetail.WUpdID, tbl_WeeklyUpdateDetail.OrderFROM (tbl_WeeklyUpdate INNER JOIN tbl_WeeklyCategory ON tbl_WeeklyUpdate.WCatID = tbl_WeeklyCategory.WCatID) INNER JOIN tbl_WeeklyUpdateDetail ON tbl_WeeklyUpdate.WUpdID = tbl_WeeklyUpdateDetail.WUpdIDWHERE (((tbl_WeeklyUpdateDetail.Status)="Final"))ORDER BY tbl_WeeklyCategory.WCatID, tbl_WeeklyUpdate.WeeklyUpdName, tbl_WeeklyUpdateDetail.WUpdID, tbl_WeeklyUpdateDetail.Order;
