Unanswered: duplicate values and multiple lines in my report
Here is my problem it seems as if it should be easy, but I haven’t been able to figure it out:
I have two tables, and a link table between them. It is a one to many relationship. I try to display them in a report, but it shows the data on different lines, and I need it together on one line.
To clarify, this is the details of it:
one column radioStations
one column ID
one column cities
one column city ID.
a link table
linking the cityID with the RadioStationID.
There can be up to five radio stations per city and I need it displayed something similar to this:
Toronto: CKNW / CKKK / CFPL etc.
If anyone could help me I would be very appreciative, since I need to have this project completed before the weekend and I have no idea how I am going to do it.

This post is well after your weekend due date, I hope you didn't get in trouble....
What you want to do is going to require you to use a Collection and a Class Module. You want to create a property in your Class Module that will hold the value of all the data that you want to display on one line. You will add this data by using a Collection.
If you already haven't found a solution to this problem than I recommend the following book: Professional Access 2000 Programming by Wrox publishers. It is about 50 bucks and it goes into great detail concerning Collections and other important stuff.
I had a project once that required me to list multiple names on one line in a report and I accomplished this using a Collection and a few user defined properties. I recommend the book only because pasting all the code would be ineffetive and a mess.
Hope this helps!!Don't do today, what can be done tomorrow.
