SQL Statement with JOIN in Excel VBA returns no records to Excel

Hi!

I'm trying to pull some records from Access 2007 into Excel 2007 using a SQL statement with a JOIN (shown below) in VBA. I've been able make a SQL statement with no JOINs (also shown below) work just fine.  And both sets of SQL statements work fine and return records in Access. So, what am I doing wrong in the JOIN statement in VBA?

BTW, I tried to alias the table names to shorten the statement, but after I got no records back the the first time, I restored full table names.  Since I'm still getting no records, that was apparently not the problem.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Simple, replace 'Ter*' with 'Ter%'
