    Combining Queries

    Hi all,

    I am trying to merge 2 queries. For example, query A has one column with letters and query B has one column with numbers; how do I make a third query that has TWO columns, one from each query. I am not really familiar with SQL and mainly use Access's visual tools, but I did try using UNION which returned a third query with ONE column with info from both queries (letters and numbers). Is UNION the correct thing to use and I am just doing it wrong or is there something else that would make the process easier?

    Thank you.

    UNION is like appending and only works where the number of fields used from each source is the same.
    Use the query builder, add your 2 queries the same as you would tables. Create whatever joins you need between the two queries, even if that is on 2 or more fields that are not included in the results.
    - "doesn't work" doesn't help. Implement changes in copies of your database.
