Hello all,
Don't know if there's any way to do this but I'll ask anyway.  If I have a table containing a text field, is there a way to create a query that summarizes all of those names into one record.

Example:
Say my table has

ID (autonumber)
RecTypeID (Number - Index from a table of Record Types)
RecName - Text

Now then I know I can pull a list of all Name fields with RecTypeID 1 or 2 or 3 etc.... BUT
that will give me a list.  Is there then a way to get all of those names as one temporary record within a query?

So let's say I have

ID    RecTypeID   RecName
1           5              Joe Smith
2            3             Jenny Jones
3            1             Mark Doe
4             5             Alvin Chip
5             5             Mary Wright
6             3             Elmer Fudd
7             5            Zack Tway
8             1             Mildred Way


So can I get all the RecTypeID 5's let's say into one query record that would be
Joe Smith, Alvin Chip, Mary Wright, Zack Tway
