what i knew is access support right and left join, but does it support outer join on 2 tables ? meant that each of the table doesn't need to have value or match to other table. does it called outer join ? can it be done in access ?

Already answered it in parts yourself.
Just create a query with a LEFT and one with a RIGHT join, both with a test or the key of the "optional side" is empty.
These only needs to be "concatenated" by a UNION and you have a "full outer join".

Clear ?
