combining data points from multiple fields into one cell for a given connecting ID

Hi - how can I combine a data-point from Table 1 with a data-point from Table 2, in a 3rd Table (e.g. the combined Table).

The data-points are connected thru a unique ID. The result should give me a concatenated version of all information for a given ID in one combining cell, with the combined information being separated by commas within the cell.

Thanks!

Re: combining data points from multiple fields into one cell for a given connecting ID

Sounds like you want to use Merge Queries to combine the tables, and then once you have all the columns you need, you can merge these (either keeping the original columns or not.

See below for using Merge Queries, there will also be a lot of videos showing this process if you search.

This article is a good walk through the difference between the two ways to merge columns
