    Combining 2 fields from different tables into 1

    I am taking two inventory tables and combing them into 1 Query.

    What I am trying to do is take the "Purchase Order #" field from the tblPO and the "Sales Order #" field from the tblSo table and merge them into 1 column.

    This way I can start to look at the inventory data as if it were like an accounting worksheet with PO being positive numbers and SO being negative numbers.

    I assume this is a newbie question, but I just can't figure it out.

    Thanks for any and all help

    Step 1: Make a query with all your fields from your table.
    Step 2: In the design mode of this query after it is created, insert a new column with the insert key.
    Step 3: In the FIELD row of the new column enter any name for the column plus a colon, after that, enter your first field name surrounded by brackets if it has spaces in it, then enter the & character, then your second field name.
    Step 4: Run the query.

    This should show the combination of your fields.
