I have 3 fields, COMMENT_1, COMMENT_2 and COMMENT_3.  Almost every record has a  COMMENT_1, a few have  COMMENT_1 & COMMENT_2 and of course even less have  COMMENT_1 & COMMENT_2  & COMMENT_3.   I have concatenated them in the query as Comments: [ COMMENT_1] & " "& [ COMMENT_2]& " "& [COMMENT_3].  If all three comment fields are not blank, the concatenated string shows up in the query.  If   COMMENT_2 or COMMENT_3 are blank, none of the comments show up and the concatenated field is blank.  Can anyone see what is wrong?  I have never had this happen before.

Thanks
Linda
