Yes it is possible.

Can you make changes to either database?  If so you could link the table from the other database to yours.

Are the records in the two database related in anyway or will the recordset be more of a union of the two?

good luck

I do not think it is possible with one select statement.
What about your primary keys? No conflict ?

It should be possible using this syntax:

"Select * From Tbl1 Union Select * From Tbl1 IN 'c:\MyFolder\MySecondDatabase.mdb'"

Assuming you have a valid connection to the first database.

I think TimCottee's solution is working only with dao.
link tables is better solution.

This solution works both with DAO and ADO rkot2000. Alternatively you could use a linked table or even a query which does it in access and then use the query as a table source in your VB application. Personally I would stick with the method I show.
