    Question Alternative to Join Property???

    I am trying to combine the results of two queries into a new query. The problem I am having is that the two queries don't have the same IDs for the data.
    Example: Query 1 has IDs 1, 2, 4, 5 and Query 2 has IDs 1, 2, 3, 5 Each ID has a count value associated with it.

    I can't use a simple join query because Query 1 has IDs that Query 2 does not (4) and Query 2 has IDs that Query 1 does not (3). I can get three different results right now: IDs 1, 2, 5 or IDs 1, 2, 4, 5 or IDs 1, 2, 3, 5. I want to have results for IDs 1, 2, 3, 4, 5.



    How can I get the new query to use all of the IDs, not just the ones that Queries 1 and 2 have in common, just Query 1's or just Query 2's?

    Thanks!!!!

    Make a temporary table table3 by using union to get all ids from table1 and table2
    This temporary table would then has a common field id to all the other tables.
    Then you can use left join to join table1 and table2 data now.

Please reply to this thread with any new information or opinions.
