Combine Two or More Fields Together
In this video, I will show you how to put two or more values together in your Microsoft Access database using concatenation. You can join text strings, numbers, currency values, and all kinds of things. I'll show you how to concatenate using a query, and then directly inside a form or report.
Bridget from El Paso, Texas (a Platinum Member) asks: I'm creating a combo box on my order form to pick a customer. It seems you can only see first name OR last name in the combo box while it's closed, but they both are in there when it's open. How can I see them both?
Members will learn how to use Null Propagation to get rid of the comma if there is no first name in a Last, First scenario. We'll also see how to concatenate currency values (and make them look like currency values) as well as numbers with a specific format, such as phone number or SSNs.
