Add ID number to potential duplicate query

Hello Experts.

I am working on a query that I just can't get to work the way I need.  I have written the following query that identifies subject names (subjectName) that exist more than once in the table:

SELECT multipleSubjectNameQry.subjectName
FROM multipleSubjectNameQry
GROUP BY multipleSubjectNameQry.subjectName
HAVING ((Count(*))>1);

Open in new window


But I need this query to also display the record number (primary key).  But, when I add the primary key field the query doesn't return anything because the results are no longer duplicates.  How can I modify this query so that it provides the list of subject names that exist more than once, along with their record numbers?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.  I am working with MS Access 2013 on Windows 7.

Also, I have tried the following, but it doesn't work either:

SELECT multipleSubjectNameQry.subjectName, multipleSubjectNameQry.myID
FROM multipleSubjectNameQry
GROUP BY multipleSubjectNameQry.subjectName, multipleSubjectNameQry.myID
HAVING (((Count(multipleSubjectNameQry.subjectName))>1));

Open in new window



Thanks,
J

Use the Find Duplicates wizard to create the query.  You can have it return whatever you want.
