Access 2007:Query change based on other criteria

I have the below query set up and I would like to add a condition to perform a different query based on a field value in another table.  

Specifically, if [Table4].[Test] has one of its values, equal to "*", I would like to return [qry3].[Cust ID]; otherwise perform the following.

SELECT [Table1].[Cust ID] INTO [NewTable]
FROM [qry1] INNER JOIN [qry2] ON [qry1].[ Cust ID] = [qry2].[ Cust ID];

How do I modify the query to do this?  Thanks.

I think you could simplify things by actually storing the query name as a field in your "lookup" table. Candace Tripp has a demo mdb called "flexible query" on her web site.  After you get on her web site, scroll down alphabetically until you get to the letter "F".

You can also add Table4 and qry3  in your query (may be joins should be changed to left join) and add following column:
CustID: iif([Table4].[Test] = "*",[qry3].[Cust ID],[qry2].[Cust ID])
The macro design view has a conditions column you can turn on, then you can do an if this do that, if that do this....
