Fill blank fields with value from field above it

Hello All,
I have a table which has the following fields: CustomerNum, CustFName,
CustLName, CustAdd1, CustAdd2, CustCity, CustZip. The CustomerNumber field is
where I have a problem. The CustomerNumber field that I need to extract is on
one row along with junk data and the rest of the fields are on the next row.
Like this:

123456789 skdjs dafsdfd dfasfsdf ff fgdgfgfd
Jay Jones 18 Main St City St 12345
I am trying to come up with a way to populate the CustomerNumber field with
the value of the field above it when it's blank. This way I could run a query
to give me the CustomerNum (123456789) and the Address information all on one
line. All of my entries are in one state so I can query where St = 'x'

Thanks for looking at this.

Thanks anyway, I took the files into Excel and wrote a formula to do this
instead. Much easier for me since the only way I could see doing it in Access
was to write VB code.
