#### Adding lines together to create one line

```This is probably very simple but somehow I can't remember how to concatenate
lines, so I have one line.  Here is example:
Table: Notes
OrderNo   LineNo   Note
111           1           aaa
111           2           bbb
111           3           ccc
222           1           xxx
222           2           yyy
333           1           000
333           2           111
333           3           222
333           4           333

The result should be:
Table: A
OrderNo   Note
111         aaabbbccc
222         xxxyyy
333         000111222333

I've tried with this query but it doesn't do it:
SELECT N1.OrderNo, N1.Note+N2.Note+N3.Note AS Expr1
FROM (Notes AS N1 INNER JOIN Notes AS N2 ON N1.OrderNo = N2.OrderNo) INNER
JOIN Notes AS N3 ON N2.OrderNo = N3.OrderNo
WHERE (((N1.OrderNo)=[N2].[OrderNo]) AND ((N1.LineNo)<[N2].[LineNo]) AND
((N2.OrderNo)=[N3.OrderNo]) AND ((N2.LineNo)<[N3].[LineNo]));

Could anybody help me please ?
```

You've got a whole huge RAFT of syntax errors there. You're repeating OrderNo
over and over again, you don't have any commas or ampersands between things,
and it's not clear to me what you're even trying to do!

If you want to concatenate values from multiple records into one field, you'll
need some VBA code:
