Duplicate Accounts

I've recently noticed that multiple accounts on my credit report are being duplicated on separate lines.  One line is being reported by two of the bureaus and another line by the third; does this affect your credit?  Is there anything that can be done to get these blended back together?

Re: Duplicate Accounts

I don't know if it really mattered or not, but I had a problem with accounts showing 2 & 3 times.  Just list the one time and that should be enough.  I sent a letter to the CRA's and requested that they remove the duplicate or triplicate accounts.  They did.
