Is there a way to rotate data in SQL or other mechanism in MS Access?  For example, say I have 3 records of data, say text string of colors  - "blue", "red", "green".   Is there a way to return a concatenation of all three colors in one string in one record?

You can use a recordset. This example will replace the last record with the concatenated value.
Sub Demo()
	Dim rs As DAO.Recordset
	Dim str As String

	Set rs = CurrentDb.OpenRecordset("table")

	rs.MoveFirst
	Do Until rs.EOF
		rs.Edit
		str = str & " " & rs!ColorFieldName
		rs.MoveNext
	Loop
	rs!ColorFieldName = str
	rs.Update
	rs.Close
	Set rs = Nothing
End Sub

Use the following to flatten row data:

Access does have a crosstab (PIVOT), but nothing to flatten built-in.
