How use left outer join with 3 tables in ACCESS?

I have 3 tables. One with customers. One with products and one which define categories of products. One product needn't a category. Now i will show with a select statement for all customers, to have all the products they have payed with the products categories or not.
I tried with left outer join and i could only put two tables(products,categories9 together. i couldn't get the customers information:

the code is like this~=:

SELECT c.name Cust, p.name, ca.name
FROM Products p LEFT OUTER JOIN Categories ca ON p.idc_R=ca.idc,
Products p LEFT OUTER JOIN Customers c ON p.idcust_R=c.idcust;

The error i get is JOIN are not supported. What i do wrong? Help me quickly, please!

Rewrite it like this:

SELECT
   c.name as Cust,
   p.name,
   ca.name
FROM
   Products p
   LEFT OUTER JOIN Categories ca
      ON (p.idc_R=ca.idc)
   LEFT OUTER JOIN Customers c
      ON (p.idcust_R=c.idcust)

But where's the payed information? That should be 4 tables together puted in the SELECT with JOINs. Or is it that I just don't understand enough English.

But for your example it should look like this one:

SELECT
  c.name Customer,
  ca.name Category
  p.name Product,
  FROM Products p
    LEFT OUTER JOIN Categories ca
      LEFT OUTER JOIN Customers c ON (here should be an ca, not p).idcust_R=c.idcust
    ON p.idc_R=ca.idc
....

For exact help we need exact inforamtion. Write the table structures for the Primary Keys and Foreign Keys.

if you use MsAccess,then use follow sql:

SELECT c.name AS cust, p.name, ca.name
FROM Customers c  
     LEFT OUTER JOIN
     (
       Products p
       LEFT OUTER JOIN
       Categories ca
         ON (p.idc=ca.idc)
     )
       ON (p.idcust=c.idcust)



if use dbase or paradox,then user follow sql:

SELECT c.name AS cust, p.name, ca.name
FROM customer C
  LEFT OUTER JOIN Products p
    ON (p.idcust=c.idcust)
  LEFT OUTER JOIN Categories ca
    ON (p.idc=ca.idc)


if use Oracle,then user follow sql:

SELECT c.name AS cust, p.name, ca.name
FROM customer C,Products p,Categories ca
WHERE c.idcust=p.idcust(+)
  AND p.idc=ca.idc(+)

shenqw, isn't not good ettiquete to answer a question like that if other experts are already working with you. You should post your comment and let the user decide. If you had been the first one in this thread, that would have been ok, but that's not the case, is it?

Watchout for that kinda behaviour, since it's not very appreciated 'round here by the other experts.

hi,simonet:
  Thx for your reminder.

  But i want say, I had write the anwer 5 hours before i post it(because Something is wrong with My ISP),Also i had tried all sql in my answer in MsAccess,DBase,Paradox, I know which is right and which is wrong in MsAccess, Because all above comments were wrong in MsAccess. So  I chose the Answer mode not Comment Mode.

The asker never stated he's using MS Access, so you couldn't assume that and post an answer.
