SELECT From Table With Selection Criteria Being Data in a Separate Query

Thank you for looking at my question,

Table X contains all production data from a number of different manufacturing transactions across a range of locations.

I have extracted data relevant to my location into Table Y using a Make Table query and plan to do some further analysis on this data.

I want to update Table Y using an Append query.

The criterion I wish to select Table X data around is the Max Date in Table Y which is stored in a separate query qryTableY_MaxDate.

How do I specify the value in qryTableY_MaxDate as the selection criterion in the append query?

eg SELECT * FROM Table X Where TRAN_DATE>qryTableY_MaxDate.Date

Your help will be appreciated greatly

Try this:

SELECT * FROM TableX , qryTableY_MaxDate WHERE TRAN_DATE>qryTableY_MaxDate.Date

Or to just select records from TableX:

SELECT TableX .* FROM TableX , qryTableY_MaxDate WHERE TRAN_DATE>qryTableY_MaxDate.Date
