Simple question about parent/child relastionships in Access

BBlu asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-11

I have two tables, Problems_and_Bugs (parent) and Notes (child) that are joined in the Relationships window via a one to many join from the parent Primary key (to the child foreign key).  When I open the Problems_and_Bugs Table I can see those fancy "+" signs that allow me to expand and see the related Notes records.  

However, when I run a query on this, I lose that functionality.  Can anyone tell me how or why?
