Concatenating/combining fields in a query: Access: Building a Sales Database

Names are typically stored in two pieces, first name and last name, each in a separate field. This makes sorting and searching for records easier, but when a full name is needed, on a label or in a letter or in a report, it's a good idea to create an expression—an Access term for a formula—that combines the two fields and places a single space between them. Learn how such expressions are best used in queries and reports, rather than in tables.
