Please offer how I may create a Union Query in Query Design View - not with SQL. I can do this via an Append Query, but would also like to know of a JOIN method of accomplishing this.

The only Join options are Inner or Outer

Thanks

You can't in Access.  You must use the SQL view. However, you can use the designer to create the SQL for each part of the UNION ... then copy and paste those into NotePad ... and then into a new blank UNION in SQL view.

And in general I use this (for editing queries, etc)

It has a Find and Replace that is very cool.
