Experts,

I need to combine 11 tables into one on their common index.  This of course will require an addition of fields to  the combined table.  I have tried both asking the query to add and by addings fields to the Combined table "T00AllCat" to no avail.  I always get the same "___"record(s) due  to validation rule violations.

What is the simplest way to accomplish this simple task?

The data base attached contains Tables T01 through T11, plus my effort to make a combination table; "T00AllCat", "T00AllCatCopy", and "T00Base".  The query I have been trying to use has been multiple versions of  "QAppT00AllCat_T01" .

Any and all guidance will be greatly appreciated.

It is not clear what you mean by "combining". I can see that T01 - T11 tables are all completely different. They have different structure, and according to their data they are designed to hold different type of information.

What exactly are you trying to achieve?

You need to create one query which uses all of your tables to select the fields you want from each table,

You need to start from one table which you know has every record you want to see in the final result.  Add the fields you want into the result grid.
 Then add the second table to the query ; join the tables on the correct field; change the join type (right click the join line) so that you have all records from the first table and any matching records from the second table. Add the fields you want from the second table to the result grid.
add each table in turn to the query, always  linking it to the first table and always changing the join type. So you end up with the first table linked to every other table and all the fields you want in the result grid.  

View the results to check you are seeing what you expect..

Then convert the query to a Make-table query (menu option).

Save the query and then run it.
