Hi

I originally posted a question that Jeffrey Coachman supplied some code that worked great...thanks Jeff.  

How can I get multiple records displayed in one line

After running some tests, I am now wanting to do some grouping.  For example the returned data is:

W~AP 280 GNC~AP 280 Qu~AS 266 GNC~AUH2 283 ADM~B 465 AGE~BA 278 Qu~BU1 293 ADM~CO 293 ADM~F1 254

I am wanting the AP 280 to be grouped together so it displays like:

W~AP 280 GNC Qu~AS 266 GNC~AUH2 283 ADM etc etc.

This will be the same for any of the same letters after the ~ with the same number.

I hope I have explained this okay....if not please let me know and I shall try to clarify.

Thanks

Ajae

You need to group by first and then use jeff's solution at:

change:
Set rst = CurrentDb.OpenRecordset("YourTable")

to:
Set rst = CurrentDb.OpenRecordset("Select PDCode, PDData From YourTable Group By PDCode, PDData Order By PDCode, PDData")
