Hi

I have a query that returns the below data:

PDCode      PDData                      PortZoneID
W              AP 280   Qu              3
W              AS 264   Qu              3
W              AUH2 282   Qu      3
W              AUH2 282   SG      3
W              BA 278   Qu              3
W              BU1 288   SG              3
W              CO 288   SG              3
W              F1 254   SG              3
W              F2 234   SG              3
W              GA 278   Qu              3

What I would like it to display is:

W AP 280 Qu~AS 264 Qu~AUH2 282   Qu SG~ BA 278   Qu~BU1 288   SG~CO 288   SG~F1 254   SG~F2 234   SG~GA 278   Qu

Is this possible in Access?

Thanks

Private Sub Command0_Click()

Put a button on your form to run code like this:

Dim rst As Recordset
Dim strRecords As String
Set rst = CurrentDb.OpenRecordset("YourQuery")
    rst.MoveFirst
    Do Until rst.EOF
       strRecords = strRecords & rst!PDCode & "~" & rst!PDData
        rst.MoveNext
    Loop
   
   Me.txtRecordsString = strRecords

rst.Close
Set rst = Nothing

End Sub

Put a textbox on your form named: txtRecordsString

Thanks JeffCoachman.

I run the code and I get

Run-time error '3061':

Too few parameters.  Expected 2.

and Debug highlights the below:

Set rst = CurrentDb.OpenRecordset("qryPDTOPPRICE")

There are two parameters in the query.  Would this cause this error?

I think this code will work better:

Dim rst As Recordset
Dim strFirstLetter As String
Dim strRecords As String
Set rst = CurrentDb.OpenRecordset("YourTable")
    rst.MoveFirst
    strFirstLetter = rst!PDCode
    Do Until rst.EOF
       strRecords = strRecords & "~" & rst!PDData
        rst.MoveNext
    Loop
   strRecords = Right(strRecords, Len(strRecords) - 1)
   strRecords = strFirstLetter & " " & strRecords
   Me.txtRecordsString = strRecords

rst.Close
Set rst = Nothing

Open in new window

Yes, ...you never mentioned parameters in your original question.

This will not work with a parameter if it is not supplied.

But here again, you are not saying what field the parameter is in?, ...how you are specifying the parameter...
is it a simple prompt, ..or is the parameter referencing a form value...
