I have the following tables and fields in an Access database
Appointments
    AppointmentID  (key field)
    OwnerID        (link field to other table)
    PetID          (link field to other table)
    AppointmentDate
Owners
    OwnerID     (key field)
    Name
Pets
    PetID       (key field)
    Name

What I need is a SQL Statement that will put them all together, ie so that I can refer to
.fields("Owners.Name")  and
.fields("Pet.Name")

I would have used the following , it allow you to add records to the recordset if it is a dynaset

SELECT Owners.Owner, Pets.PetName, Appointments.AppontmentDate
FROM Pets INNER JOIN (Owners INNER JOIN Appointments ON Owners.OwnerID = Appointments.OwnerID) ON Pets.PetID = Appointments.PetID;

raygibbins is right...if you need updateable and you are selecting from multiple tables you need JOIN.

Thanks Ray, but I already gave the points to lawnranger.  I don't need to update the records, just cycle through them and add the information to a listview control
