Access Reports

Hi
I want to bring data from 3 seperate tables into a single report in Access 2010.
Table 1 contains customer data, name address etc, Table 2 contains the financial aspects of the job, labour charges etc, and table 3 is a list of parts used on the job.
I have used a select query to get the information form each table onto the report, the tables are linked by the job number.
The problem I have is that if a job has been done and no parts were used, I don't get any information about that job on the report at all.
I guess I have not created the relationships properly or perhaps the grouping of the report is not correct, I tried to group by the job number but still get nothing if no parts were used.

Double-click the joins and change to select all records from customer data and only those that match from the other tables.

Can you give the SQL of the query you are using, or show the query design?

From what you've said so far, I suspect you are using INNER (two-way) joins, which will only return records if the tables on both sides of the join contain information. To get jobs that have no parts, you need to use a LEFT or RIGHT (one-way) join so that all records are returned from the jobs table regardless of whether any parts are returned from the parts table.

I tried the suggestion by c1nmo but it didn't make any difference, the SQL code attached does show an inner join but I don't know how to change this
SELECT Customers.[Job Number], Customers.[Customer Name], Customers.Address, Customers.[Post Code], Customers.[Vehicle Make], Customers.[Vehicle Model], Customers.[Registration Number], Customers.Colour, Customers.[Job Description], PartsList.Quantity, PartsList.Description, PartsList.[Selling cost], Finance.[Labour charge], Finance.[Paint Materials], Finance.[Sale Type], Finance.[Invoice Total]
FROM (Customers INNER JOIN PartsList ON Customers.[Job Number] = PartsList.[Job Number]) INNER JOIN Finance ON Customers.[Job Number] = Finance.[Finance Job Number];
