I have a parts table that has the guage of metal and type of metal to make a part.  I have a cost table that has costs which is dependent on guage and type.

Parts Table:
Parts    GA   Type
A1         12    H
A2          10    G

Cost Table:
Type  GA  Cost
H         07     1.25
H         10     1.00
H         12     0.75
G         07     1.50
G . . . . .

What is the best way to calculate the cost for each part - (I thought about a subselect query but have not done many)

Thanks for any help with this.

Bring the two table into a query in design view.
Create inner joins between GA and between Type of the two tables.

Create a query as follows:

Select P.Parts,  C.Cost
FROM
[Parts Table] P Inner Join [Cost Table] C
on P.GA = C.GA and P.[Type] = C.[Type]
