I have 7text fields that I want to concatinate into another text field that already has data in it.

The field names that I want to move the data from are Recoat_SI, ReCutDS_SI, Transfer_SI, Specials_SI, Bushing_SI, Replate_SI and Specials_PF_SI.  The field that I want the data added to is called Strip_SI. This field already has data in it, so I don't want the existing data overwritten, just added to. The table name is Order_Line_Detail.  What update commands would I use in SQL server or in MS access to make this happen?

I suspect there may be more to this than you have said so far but anyway..
In Access..

Update   Order_Line_Detail  set   Strip_SI =
Strip_SI &  Recoat_SI &  ReCutDS_SI & Transfer_SI & Specials_SI & Bushing_SI & Replate_SI & Specials_PF_SI

This will update every record in the table.
