Hi aannan,

What says the error? You could try this

SELECT [Member#],[LastName],[FirstName],[Email] FROM tblMembers INNER JOIN tblEvent ON [tblMembers].MemberID = [tblEvent].MemberID INNER JOIN tblAvail ON [tblMembers].MemberID = [tblAvail].MemberID WHERE [tblAvail].Days=-1 AND [tblEvent].EventSingles=-1


Cheers!

Try putting the first join in brackets:

SELECT [Member#],[LastName],[FirstName],[Email] FROM (tblMembers INNER JOIN tblEvent ON tblMembers.MemberID = tblEvent.MemberID) INNER JOIN tblAvail ON tblMembers.MemberID = tblAvail.MemberID WHERE tblAvail.Days=-1 AND tblEvent.EventSingles=-1

Have you checked all the column names are correct ? It sounds like there maybe another error here rather than the join being the problem

My guess is that the # is the problem. Try to rename the field in the table if possible (or create a copy of that table, change the column name there and try the query with the new table).

Yep have semi-colon at the end. Do you think it has anything to do because I am running  the query in the SQL builder in access? the query looks fine to me unless theres is some detail i am missing

Should be fine in SQL builder buut is always worth trying to display in Design mode too - that way it will show up any syntax errors before you try to run the query. If you can't display it in Design mode then try re-entering the query in Design mode a step at a time.
