I have two tables one that has new data monthly and the other a back up of it. I have renamed last months, how do i create a query that will tell me if any data in any field changed  value?

so [currentmonth].[field1] =[lastmonthsbackup].[field1] no change
 [currentmonth].[field2]<>[lastmonthsbackup].[field2] data changed so row returned

the two tables are obviously identicle in structure.

Add a WHERE condition comparing all the fields which you care about. Check that they are not equal to each other and OR each set of fields together. Pseudocode:
WHERE t1.f1 <> t2.f1 OR t1.f2 <> t2.f2 OR t1.f3 <> t2.f3
