I have two tables (table1, table2) with description of a product (a car) in these two tables the car field is a common field. In the first table de date of when the car was painted is storage, in table2 the when it was delivered.  How can I accomplish with a query a result as table 3 shown in picture? I need to show all the cars numbers from both tables in one column and in two column show when the car was either painted of delivered.

Thanks in advance for the help
