Combine rows into one field in Access

Hi all.

I have an Access 2003 table (myTable) with 3 fields: Manufacturer, ManufacturerID, myProductID.

I have attached an Excel file with sample data.

What I want to do is combine or concatenate the data in Manufacturer and ManufacturerID for every instant of myProductID. So I should only have 2 fields for each myProductID, using the attached sample data it should look like this:


AAA---SONY, PHILLIPS, ABC, DEF, 123, 456, 789

Any idea how I can do this?

Thank you in advance!

Thank you for your reply boag2000.

I changed the query a bit:

Combined: [MyProductID] & ", " & DConcat("Manufacturer","YourData","MyProductID='" & [MyProductID] & "'") & ", " & DConcat("ManufacturerID","YourData","MyProductID='" & [MyProductID] & "'")

Open in new window

And it worked great!
