I have the following line (followed by many similar), but I want to return not only the missing field and the Account Title, but also the account number...what do I need to change to return (Account#) for the query??

Current: select "Account" as MissingField, [AccountTitle] from [RIA Accounts] where IsNull([Account]) UNION ....etc...

just add it into your query

select [Account#] , [AccountTitle] from [RIA Accounts] where IsNull([Account])


now remember, all queries in your union statement must return the same number of columns
so since this is in the first column, if subsequent queries dont have it, add in the missing column, like u did

select [Account#] , [AccountTitle] from [RIA Accounts] where IsNull([Account])
union
select '' as something, ...
