You can run into a problem with that, if there's a company name that comes earlier in the sort sequence than the "column header". I usually add a "Sequence" column, hard-coded to 0 for the header, and 1 for the query under the union, and then order by that first, to force the header to stay on top. (Had to do that in a few places in an Access front-end application.)

Just something to think about on it.

Yep knew that, I've had to do the same as you several times :-)
But took it that the select text has a leading space would overcome that (unless there is a CompanyName with a leading space)

Hullo David Burrows,

Thank you very much for sharing information with me in coding that makes me understand it logically.

Appreciate your generosity in helping with sample coding.
You are wonderful. I will recommend you to my office other IT Progammers.

I will try out your suggestion and once I got it working I will post it here to share with others who may have encounter similar problems.

I am so glad and happy to meet you here.
