If you want someone to attempt to write code for you, you'll need to provide more details.  What have you tried yourself?

The easiest place to do this is in a query.

Select fld1, fld2, fld3, [Field Name A] & " " & [Field Name B] As fldAB
From yourtable;

You can use vbCR or maybe vbCRLF but I wouldn't do this in a query.  I would do it in the report.  In fact, if you lay out the report correctly, you shouldn't even be concatenating the additional lines.  Access is able to suppress printing an entire line if it contains no data so for the typical address label with four lines - name; addr1; addr2; city & state & zip, the third line is usually suppressed.
