How do I combine two tables into one query?  the tables are exact... so it's not a parent/child situation... the tables are current/archived data... when the user selects a date which falls into the archived data range... I would like to pull that data, in addition to any data n the current file which may also fall into the users selected date rage.  I'm using a VFP-OLEDB connection in asp.net page... (vb)...

I'm trying to populate a grid... then a crystal report... if the user desires to print.

Something like select * from table1, table2 where dateshipped => etc...

I'm not sure of your exact syntax, but it sounds as if a union operator is what you need to research.

Select *
from table1
where dateshipped = (...)
UNION
select *
from table2
where dateshipped = (...)
