Could experts explain the below results in immediate window please? I expect something more substantial than mere "distinct is not distinctrow".I (thought I) know the difference.
?len(Currentdb.OpenRecordset("Select distinctrow'" & string(400,"?") & "' as X from [Stability Sum]")(0))
 400 
?len(Currentdb.OpenRecordset("Select distinct   '" & string(400,"?") & "' as X from [Stability Sum]")(0))
