How can I modify query to make table from union query.

I should use only 1 query (I know how to do it in 2 queries, I need to do it in 1 query)

SELECT [Insurance Payees].*
FROM [Insurance Payees]
UNION SELECT [Tax Payees].*
FROM [Tax Payees];

I don't think you can.  You need to save the UNION query as a named query, then create a MakeTable query from that ...

This should work:
SELECT MyUnion.* INTO zzMyNewTable
FROM 
(SELECT [Insurance Payees].*
FROM [Insurance Payees]
UNION SELECT [Tax Payees].*
FROM [Tax Payees]) as MyUnion

That does seem to work, technically not a UNION query by itself.  But it is one query.

It is a make table query based on a union query - done in one statement and saved as one Query object in Access - which answers the question asked.
