I am writing a database for a charity that has contacts some of whom attend events and where they may pledge or make donations to the charity. The attached relationship diagram shouws my basic design.  
I am trying to display a contact form with a subform showing an events datasheet so that an event can be  selected. I have used a query  (SQL code below), but it always remains empty as all conditions are not satisfied until the data has been entered.
I am going round in circles, please can someone help!!
SELECT Contacts.CustomerID, ContactEvent.ConteventCustID, ContactEvent.EventID, ContactEvent.Invited, ContactEvent.Accepted, ContactEvent.Attended, ContactEvent.[Amount Pledged], ContactEvent.donationID AS ContactEvent_donationID, Events.EventID, Events.EventName, Events.Location, Events.Date, Events.Cost, Events.Comments
FROM Contacts INNER JOIN (ContactEvent INNER JOIN Events ON ContactEvent.ConteventCustID = Events.EventID) ON Contacts.CustomerID = ContactEvent.ConteventCustID;
