MS Access 2003 append query

wjeb used Ask the Experts™
Why does the destination table I want to append to not appear in the drop down list when I try to create an append query to transfer data from one table to another?  The 2 tables have identical structures, 2 fields:  class and name.  No primary key in either table.  No restrictions set re duplicate entries in either field in either table.  Other tables and queries do appear.

Is it possible Hidden, ie is the Hidden property set to Yes?

I found an answer.  Apparently  there was a bug and the first table in the list does not appear in the drop-down list.  Creating a dummy table to be first in the list should solve the problem.


I found the answer from a search I did on Google.
