I have a statement that counts occurrences of a combined field. I need the ID number of each of those rows.
SELECT    sFirstName + ' ' + sLastName AS Contacts, COUNT(sFirstName + ' ' + sLastName) AS NumOccurrences
FROM         tContacts
GROUP BY sFirstName + ' ' + sLastName
HAVING      (COUNT(sFirstName + ' ' + sLastName) > 1)

you need to join back;
select c.sFirstName , c.sLastName, c.ID
  from tContacts c
  join ( SELECT    sFirstName , sLastName , COUNT(*) AS NumOccurrences
           FROM         tContacts
          GROUP BY sFirstName , sLastName
           HAVING     count(*) > 1
        ) l
  ON l.sFirstName = c.sFirstName
 AND l.sLastName = c.sLastName
