Can you be mroe specifc? combine them how, produce a concatenated string?
Combine them for output only, or pupulate a new field? Can any of the
original fields be Null? If so, what should be the effect on the combined
result?

I am attempting to export the information from one database (call it
Employees) so that it can then be import it another Access Database
(Business).
In the database that I am attempting to import the data to, the address
field contains Street name, City, and Province in one field called Address.
In the next database the same information exist as three separate fields.
What I would like to do is combine the information from the three separate
fields in a query, without modifying the database and export it to an excel
spreadsheet.

Most of the work is done except combining the three text fields.

(It would be nice to have the contents of each field end with a comma)
Please feel free to ask any our clarifying questions, Steve (or anyone else
who has a suggestion)

Thanks

You'll want to make a query that includes the computed result, then export the
query. In your query, have a field defined as something like the following:

Address: [tblAddress].[StreetNumber] & ", " & [tblAddress].[StreetName] & ", "
& [tblAddress].[Province]
