I use Access 2003.

If I open an internal Access 2003 table that has a field with multiple values,
how would I open this field to see all of the values within it?

If I expand the Row Height, I see additional values within the same row.

That appears to be a string value, probably with carriage return/line feed characters embedded in the string.

If you type:

?DLOOKUP("CC", "tblRptCover", "rptID = 1")

in the immediate window, what gets printed out?
