I understand. What I'm actually showing you is the result of a query.
I actually have three tables...people, conference location, and a linking 
table. Each person has a unique id in its table and each conference location 
(thirty locations) has a unique id. Each person has three conference 
location choices assigned in the linking table, so Johnny is recID 7 and my 
three locations are locID 12, 18, and 24. My linking table (in this case) 
would then have three records 7 with 12, 7 with 18, and 7 with 24. I need to 
get a list of each person and their three locations.
Am I doing this the wrong way? Please, any help is appreciated.
