Hi,

I would be very grateful if someone could help me with the following.

I have 2 tables that have the same number of records and some fields are the same.

I would like to produce a query that retrieves all the data from the 2nd table and adds the records for 2 fields from the 1st table.

Many thanks in advance
Alison

Do you have a common column on which you can join two tables? You may need something like this.


SELECT Table2.*,Table1.Column1,Table1.Column2
  FROM (Table2
  INNER JOIN Table1 ON Table2.PK = Table1.PK)
0

Thank you for the quick response.

Yes, there is a common column in both tables.  Could you indicate how this would affect the SQL you have suggested?

Many thanks
