    2 different fields into 1 column by query?

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

    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 d 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

    First: You need to link your two tables with a relationship. Then:

    Step 1: Make a query in design mode. Add both your tables in the design window to this query.
    Step 2: Add the desired fields from both tables to this query.
    Step 3: In the design mode of this query after it is created, insert a new column with the insert key.
    Step 4: 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 5: Run the query.

    This should show the combination of your fields.
