combine informaiton on two rows into 1 row

I need some help with a query that will do the following:

If Table1.SSNO are equal and Table1.CUNITS = "1" then Table1.PROCDESC is added together to form 1 one PROCDESC replacing TRANSCRIPTION BY LINE description.

So this table1 example will become what the second table looks like.

Table1

ID      COMPANY      XACDATE      FACILITY      SSNO      PROCDESC      CUNITS      CLAIMID      CHGAMOUNT      INCIDENTNO
1      RMR      3/6/2012      YAMP      10201      IR INJECT SHOULDER ARTHROGRAM      1      321      $164.50      2
2      RMR      3/6/2012      YAMP      10201      IR FLUORO GUIDE FOR NEEDLE      1      321      $123.00      2
3      RMR      3/6/2012      YAMP      10201      TRANSCRIPTION BY LINE      38      321      $8.36      2
4      RMR      3/6/2012      YAMP      10201      MRI EXTREMITY UPPER  JOINT W/O      1      326      $294.00      3
5      RMR      3/6/2012      YAMP      10201      TRANSCRIPTION BY LINE      61      326      $13.42      3


Table 2 example:

ID      COMPANY      XACDATE      FACILITY      SSNO      PROCDESC      CUNITS      CLAIMID      CHGAMOUNT      INCIDENTNO
3      RMR      3/6/2012      YAMP      10201      IR INJECT SHOULDER ARTHROGRAM/IR FLUORO GUIDE FOR NEEDLE      38      321      $8.36      2
5      RMR      3/6/2012      YAMP      10201      MRI EXTREMITY UPPER JOINT W/O      61      326      $13.42      3


Thanks.

I'm confused...

How does the "Combined" record in table 2 end up with the CHGAMOUNT and CUNITS from ID3 in table 1.
Why is the new number ID 3 in table 2?

What is this to be used form,...this is really creating "Un-Normalized" data...

The way I supplied is probably confusing.  I will try to shorten what I really need.

In the table I am supplied with a procedure and the procedures trancription line count.

For every procedure I need the "transcription line count" description to be over written by the actual name of the procedure.

The overwritten description will line up with the actual line count and I can discard the other rows.

It is not consistant.  Some accounts will have more than one procedure where then I would have to use the incident number so that the correct decriptions will end up on the correct line counts.

I will try another way to hopefully clarify what I need.

This is the data in excel.  I used fewer columns because the charge amount does not matter in what I am trying to do.

SSNO      PROCDESC      CUNITS      CLAIMID
10201      IR INJECT SHOULDER ARTHROGRAM      1      321
10201      IR FLUORO GUIDE FOR NEEDLE      1      321
10201      TRANSCRIPTION BY LINE      38      321
10201      MRI EXTREMITY UPPER  JOINT W/O      1      326
10201      TRANSCRIPTION BY LINE      61      326
10203      TRANSCRIPTION BY LINE      60      343
10203      MRI CERVICAL SPINE W/O CONTRAS      1      343
10208      TRANSCRIPTION BY LINE      69      392
10208      MRI LUMBAR SPINE W&W/O      1      392
10214      TRANSCRIPTION BY LINE      23      376
10214      XR CHEST 2 VIEWS      1      376
10219      TRANSCRIPTION BY LINE      16      333
10219      XR SPINE CERVICAL 4 VIEWS      1      333
10228      TRANSCRIPTION BY LINE      53      394
10326      MRI EXTREMITY LOWER JOINT WITH      1      399
10326      TRANSCRIPTION BY LINE      28      399
10326      IR FLUORO GUIDE FOR NEEDLE      1      399
10326      IR INJECT HIP ARTHROGRAM      1      399
10326      TRANSCRIPTION BY LINE      43      399

Each claim ID should have at least two descriptons:
TRANSCRIPTION BY LINE
MRI, XRAY, or whatever the exam was.

I need the true exam description to overwrite the "TRANSCRIPTION BY LINE".

There are cases where I will only have one CLAIMID and either no TRANSCRIPTION BY LINE, or no true exam description.  In this case I would do nothing.

There are cases where there are multiple procedure descriptions per 1 TRANSCRIPTION BY LINE row.  In these cases the mulitple procedures descriptions need to be on 1 row separated with "/" for example IR INJECT SHOULDER ARTH/IR FLOUORO GUIDE FOR NEEDLE.

There are cases where there are multiple INCIDENTNO per CLAIMID in which case

the 1's would be paried, the 2's would be paired. etc.

I was hopeing to pull this into access and use a query or SQL but excel macro might work also.

Thanks.
