    I have probably a relatively easy question that I just can't figure out the
    answer to. I have a field of data that reads like this

    01129208

    What I would like to do is add a zero on the end to have it read 011292080

    I know in Excel there is a concatenate function I can do this with, but does
    something similiar exist in MS Access?

    Actually I figured it out by typing the 01129208 + "0"...I knew it was in my
    head somewhere

    I'd recommend using & for concatenation, to ensure that Access doesn't get
    confused and treat it as adding zero to the number.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
