I am trying to create an append query in VBA SQL that performs a LEFT JOIN on 2 tables that are not externally linked to the db running the code.

Running into trouble with my FROM clause.

hoping i can have syntax along the lines of:

FROM Table1 in 'pathway to table1 mdb' LEFT JOIN Table2 in 'path to table2 mdb'  ON Table1.Field=Table2.Field

Is it possible to generate SQL that performs joins on tables that are not externally linked???

I appreciate the help.
