For permanent relationships:
In native ACCESS for MDB files, there is a relationship painter that is quite nice and saves the relationships with the MDB file.  Cascade deletes are well supported.  This tool does not require code.


For SQL Server, you will need to use triggers to manage the relationships.

For temporary relationsips:
Use a SQL SELECT statement with a WHERE clause like
  SELECT *
  FROM tblTableA, tblTableB
  WHERE tblTableA.Key = tblTableB.Key

Access also has a QBE tool for painting these Inner and Outer JOINs.  You can copy the SQL from the QBE by looking at the SQL option instead of the DESIGN option.
