I need to compare 2 access 2010 tables. One is the original the other an updated version. I need to track the changes. There is no unique ID so JOINs are difficult. VBA code may be required.

I need to compare 2 access 2010 tables. One is the original the other an updated version. I need to track the changes between the two and populate a third table with the differences. There  is no unique ID so JOINs are difficult. VBA code may be required but I don't do much coding. There are only 15 columns but thousands of rows. Any assistance with SQL, JOINS or VBA to resolve this would be appreciated.

I would used ODBC connection from SQL to import the data or just link the tables so you can run inside SQL a command like below that will give the differences between the two identical structure tables:


SELECT * FROM AccessTable1
EXCEPT
SELECT * FROM AccessTable2

UNION

SELECT * FROM AccessTable2
EXCEPT
SELECT * FROM AccessTable1
