Hi Experts,
I am having my database in MS Access(I haven't work with access earlier),I write a simple join statement to retrieve data from tables but surprisingly it is throwing Syntax error.
So I created those tables in Sql and execute the same query and it is working fine there.
Is there syntax differences in Sql and Access.
If so then what should I change in following query,


select PM.Prod_Name,NV.Visit_Count,ST.Quantity,RT.Prod_Code as 'Rejection Reason'

 from

 Product_Master PM

 inner join Next_Visit NV on NV.Prod_Code=PM.Prod_Code

 left outer join Sale_Table ST on ST.Prod_Code=PM.Prod_Code

 left outer join Rejection_Table RT on RT.Prod_Code=PM.Prod_Code

select PM.Prod_Na,NV.Visit_C,ST.Quantit,RT.Prod_Co as "Rejection Reason"

from

Product_Master PM

inner join Next_Visit NV on NV.Prod_Co = PM.Prod_Co

left outer join Sale_Table ST on ST.Prod_Co = PM.Prod_Co

I'm fairly certain MS Access doesn't support the "outer" keyword. I may be wrong, but this should work.

Hope it helps,
Nate
SELECT Product_Master.Prod_Na,Next_Visit.Visit_C,Sale_Table.Quantit,Rejection_Table.Prod_Co AS "Rejection Reason"

FROM Product_Master

INNER JOIN Next_Visit ON Next_Visit.Prod_Co = Product_Master.Prod_Co

LEFT JOIN Sale_Table ON Sale_Table.Prod_Co = Product_Master.Prod_Co

LEFT JOIN Rejection_Table ON Rejection_Table.Prod_Co = Product_Master.Prod_Co;

select PM.Prod_Name,NV.Visit_Count,ST.Quantity,RT.Prod_Code as "Rejection Reason"
 from
((( Product_Master PM
 Inner Join Next_Visit NV On NV.Prod_Code = PM.Prod_Code)
Left Join Sale_Table ST On ST.Prod_Code = PM.Prod_Code)
 Left Join Rejection_Table RT On RT.Prod_Code = PM.Prod_Code);
