I have the task of taking and Access 07 database that has data in which I need to combine records with the same Key field (Parcel_ID).  Example below:
Resources_Parcel_Legal (Table)
Before:
Parcel_ID    Plat_Book     Page      Deed_Date      Legal_Description
10                  1834           361         1/12/99             PT NW SW
10                  0322         0233         9/22/95             MH ON LEASE
                                                                                      RPID55
10                  0344            541         2/22/93            PT NW SW

After:
Parcel_ID       Plat_Book     Page      Deed_Date      Legal_Description
 10                    1834               36         1/12/99               PT NW SW
                                                                                            MH ON LEASE
                                                                                            RPID55

So I need VB code or script to take the identical Parcel_ID field and combine the Legal_Description fields and create one record from the three.  I need the code
to update the database and remove the two records that are combined.

If anyone can help me with this I would be very grateful!
