Help needed creating a more compact report

In Microsoft Access 2000, I have a multi-column report that currently prints
like this:

Abel St
Agate St
   319 Apt 15
   319 Apt 208

I want to create a report that prints in a much more compact format, like
Abel St:  1705, 1719
Agate St:   200, 319 (#15, #208), 405

What do I need to do?  And if this question has been answered before, what
would I search on to find the answer?  I looked around but couldn't find it.

You need to use a finction like:'Generic%20Function%20To%20Concatenate%20Child%20Records'
to construct the number list.

Assuming all the data is in one table, the report's record
source query could look like:

SELECT street, Concatenate("Select number From table Where
street = """ & Street &"""")
FROM table
GROUP BY street

Thanks, Marshall!  Now all I need is a little help getting with the last step.

In addition to combining house numbers
Agate St:  200, 319, 405

I also want to combine apartment numbers:
Agate St:   200, 319 (#15, #208), 405

I can't figure out how to do that using the function.  Given that I'm nesting
twice -- GROUPing both by street number and apartment unmber -- do I need to
switch to using VBA to write the report?  If so, where can I find an example
of something similar?  If I don't need to, how do I pull this off?

How to create a connection point in Excel

mscvr71.dll help
How do I make my 2003 software not depend on msvcr71.dll? Thanks. Use static linking. I don't know where to set the option in VS7, but it used to be under Code Generation where you selected the desired C runtime library to use. In VS6 we had a choice between a dynamically-linked runtime and a statically-linked runtime. I've not had to make this choice under VS7 so I'm not sure where, in their overly-clever and completely gratuitous reimplementation of the user interface, this has been hidden. joe On Sat, 21 Feb 2004 22:24:56 GMT, wrote: &g...

Of course, if the grid isn't too large and most of the cells will have data, then you could simply use a two-dimensional array. For larger grids that will be sparsley populated, there are a couple of algorithms to consider.
