join multiple query results into 1 query

hey guys, i have 3 complex queries and they each give me just 1 value

so for example

Query 1: Output result --> 137
Query 2: Output result --> 33
Query 3: Output result --> 104

there is only 1 cell for each of the output results

Question: how do i join these into 1 resultant queries with 3 cells in 1 row?

i was thinking of using a union query but i don't think that will work as i am trying to add columns instead of rows

i was thinking about outer join but i don't have a unique key

the only way i can think of so far is to write it to a temporary table and then do a select query from there.

thanks in advance guys!

You can create a Crosstab out from the union query.

Hello developingprogrammer,

In my opinion, a union query will suffice with your requirement. You can design it using a sample below:


SELECT DISTINCT tblSample.TestField
FROM tblSample
WHERE (((tblSample.TestField)="Emp1"))

UNION ALL

SELECT DISTINCT tblSample.TestField
FROM tblSample
WHERE (((tblSample.TestField)="Emp2"))

UNION ALL

SELECT DISTINCT tblSample.TestField
FROM tblSample
WHERE (((tblSample.TestField)="Emp3"));


Sincerely,

hi Ed, thanks for your response!

so the result would be 1 column with 3 rows is that correct?

let's say just for moot i really need 3 columns in 1 row, how can i achieve that? thanks! = )

Just ignore my post:

"as i am trying to add columns instead of rows"

I missed that part in your question.

Actually, you could simply try:

Select qry1.Field1, qry2.Field1, qry3.Field1
FROM qry1, qry2, qry3

This is a Cartesian join, all combinations of all records from all queries.
