What do you mean when you say "copy and paste"? I don't think you can copy the query - i.e. the query from the Navigation Pane - but you should be able to see the SQL of that query. Switch to that view, and just copy the SQL, then create a new query in your desktop Access database, switch to SQL view in that new query, and past the SQL in. Assuming you're connected to the right database, the query should then work.

Hi Scott. The MS guys got back to me. Turns out that copy and paste is disabled for web apps. only works for desktop mode. I am not aware being able to see the SQL code for a query designed for a custom web db app (i.e. not desktop db). How do you switch to that view?

Hmmm ... just tried to do it with a Query, and you can't switch over to SQL view. Yet another limitation of an Access Web App. Unfortunately, it looks like you'll have to create it in your desktop version by hand. You should be able to open the query in Design view in the web app and basically just copy over the elements and joins.
