Outer join function in Access

Dear All,
     Do anyone know how to get all the results in 2 tables A and B?
A and B has  a relationship of ID in each table, but I want to get all the result in A and B and also the result of A.id = B.id. How can I do that?
It seems likely to be the function of outer join in MsSQL, isn't it?
However, Access doesn't have this function, am I right?

select * FROM A, B;  ?

im not sure you are asking the right question.

why dont you start by describing your current table structure and the question you would like answered by your query?

or just in case you know what you want: select * from a,b where a.id = b.id;

Access doesnt have outer joins but you can simulate it by doing creating three queries:

1.  Select query changing join type to select all records in A and only related records in B
2.  Select query changing join type to select all records in B and only related records in A
3.  Union query to combine the previous two queries

This provides the same as an outer join, just a few more steps to get there.

Regards,
