How to avoid a syntax error, Missing Operator on a UNION ALL statement ?

I am creating an MDB type Access application.
I used the following statement in the Attach Code Snippet in my VBA code:

Do you know why it caused the following statement ?

Run-time error '-2147217900(80040E14')

Syntax error (missing operator) in query expression 'DE05 Is Not Null Union ALL SELECT Account AS Account, Client AS Client, Address AS Address, JA06 AS [STATEMENT PERIOD] FROM tblPWM WHERE JA06 is Not Null'.  




CurrentProject.Connection.Execute "INSERT INTO tblPWMMod " & _
"  SELECT Account AS Account, Client AS Client, Address AS Address, DE05 AS [STATEMENT PERIOD] FROM tblPWM WHERE DE05 Is Not Null " & _
"  Union ALL SELECT Account AS Account, Client AS Client, Address AS Address, JA06 AS [STATEMENT PERIOD] FROM tblPWM WHERE JA06 is Not Null "
