INNER JOIN (Table INNER JOIN [table] ON...)

I'm stuck... why won't this join work?

tallySql = "select orderitems.ProductId, tblProduct.ItemName, orders.orderstatus, sum(orderItems.Qty) as sumQty from OrderItems INNER JOIN (orders INNER JOIN [tblProduct] ON orderItems.ProductId=tblProduct.ItemSKU) ON orders.orderid=orderitems.orderid WHERE orders.orderstatus = 'a' group by orderItems.ProductId, tblProduct.ItemName order by orderItems.ProductId"

You are joining the [Orders] table and the [tblproduct] table based on criteria that uses the [orderItems] table.  Maybe it should look like this:


tallySql = "select orderitems.ProductId, tblProduct.ItemName, orders.orderstatus, sum(orderItems.Qty) as sumQty from (tblProduct INNER JOIN (orders INNER JOIN OrderItems ON orders.orderid=orderitems.orderid) ON orderItems.ProductId=tblProduct.ItemSKU) WHERE orders.orderstatus = 'a' group by orderItems.ProductId, tblProduct.ItemName order by orderItems.ProductId"

What about this?
select
     orderitems.ProductId, tblProduct.ItemName, orders.orderstatus,      sum(orderItems.Qty) as sumQty
from
     OrderItems,orders,[tblProduct]
WHERE
     orderItems.ProductId=tblProduct.ItemSKU and
     orders.orderid=orderitems.orderid  and
     orders.orderstatus = 'a'
group by
     orderItems.ProductId, tblProduct.ItemName
order by
     orderItems.ProductId"
