I need to be able to run a SELECT query and return all values it finds to a string variable with the results seperated by commas using VBA. Can anyone help?

I would use GetRows.
From the on-line help:
Sub RækkerMatrix()
  Dim dbs As Database, rst As Recordset, strSQL As String
  Dim varRecords As Variant, intI As Integer, intJ As Integer

  Set dbs = CurrentDb
  strSQL = "SELECT * FROM tblYourTable"
  Set rst = dbs.OpenRecordset(strSQL)
  rst.MoveLast
  rst.MoveFirst
  varRecords = rst.GetRows(rst.RecordCount)
  For intI = 0 To UBound(varRecords, 2)
    Debug.Print
    For intJ = 0 To UBound(varRecords, 1)
      Debug.Print varRecords(intJ, intI)
    Next intJ
  Next intI
  rst.Close
  Set dbs = Nothing
End Sub

Open in new window


Adjust the line
      Debug.Print varRecords(intJ, intI)
to fit your need.
