    Combining results from 2 tables

    Hi,
    I have 2 tables and 2 queries from which I want to combine summary fields into one report
    I have table costs, and table payment Schedules. These contain all of the costs allocated to a specific job for which I have built a query and report which shows all of the summary costs of each cost type for one of the many jobs we have. The second is a table of all of the payments either scheduled or paid for one job and I have built a report and query to show the amount to be paid or actually paid. What I want is to combine the Summary of costs and the summary of payments actually paid to see the instant profitability of any job. So I want to set up the query, I assume a cross tab query, to interrogate both tables and make a calculated field (2 actually) to show the profit on a job and the % profit on teh turnover.
    Is that possible? I can't seem to figure it out.



    Thanks

    Sounds more like a UNION query is needed to pull together the data from the 2 different tables (or queries).

    SELECT Field1, Field2
    FROM Table1
    UNION ALL
    SELECT Field1, Field2
    FROM Table2

    That seems to append the resulting table with the results from both tables with the amount paid in the same column as the costs. However as I need to make a calculated field that doesn't work in this case. Can I do 2 simple queries with a sum and then do a cross tab query from them both maybe?

    I guess it depends on how you want to present the results. You could sum the results of the UNION query to get a net amount per job. If you want to present the costs and payments separately, you could join your 2 queries in a third query that included a list of jobs (in case a job had no costs or payments yet).
