Access Query concatenate address

I have a db where addresses are stored:-
A1
A2
A3
A4
A5

Which can look like this: -

A1 = Street name
A2 = Town
A3 =
A4= County
A5= Post Code

Is there a way (in the query) I can concatenate the fields and remove the blanks?

So it look like this: -
Street name
Town
County
Post Code

if you want to make them appear in several lines add vbcrlf

Try:

iif(Trim([A1]) isnull, "", Trim([A1]) & vbcrlf ) &
iif(Trim([A2]) isnull, "", Trim([A2]) & vbcrlf ) &
iif(Trim([A3]) isnull, "", Trim([A3]) & vbcrlf ) &
iif(Trim([A4]) isnull, "", Trim([A4]) & vbcrlf ) &
iif(Trim([A5]) isnull, "", Trim([A5])  )

Hi guys, thanks for the quick response vbcrlf does not seem to be recognised in query builder, does this mean I have to create a function?

Got confused by this at first, then realised I needed a space between 'is' and 'null'
