I have Table-1 in an access databse  that has two fields, lets call them, Field-A and Field-B, they both Contain a Integer value that corresponds to the Key firld in Table-2, lets say Table-2 has 2 fields Key-Field (ing) and Field-Name is there a way to write a OpenRecordset Line that would link them together and give me back 2 name.

Table 1
Field-A   Field-B
  1         2
  4         5

Field-Key Field-Name
1             BOB  
2             Mary
3             Craig

5             Jane
6             Suzanne

Result of SQL Call
Field-1     Field-2

Taking you quite literally on all your table and field names, this is required:

SELECT Table2.[Field-Name] AS [Field-1], Table2_1.[Field-Name] AS Field2
FROM ((Table1 INNER JOIN Table1 AS Table1_1 ON (Table1.[Field-B] = Table1_1.[Field-B]) AND (Table1.[Field-A] = Table1_1.[Field-A])) INNER JOIN Table2 ON Table1.[Field-A] = Table2.[Field-Key]) INNER JOIN Table2 AS Table2_1 ON Table1_1.[Field-B] = Table2_1.[Field-Key];
