MS Access Query

I need help writing a query. There are three fields from three tables involved: File from the Files table, Path from the Paths table and Extension from the File Types table. The result of combining the three fields will look like the following:


The full path and file information “c:\images\image1.tif” has to appear in a single record. Any advice about how write the query will be greatly appreciated.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

In your query, you define a column as:

 [Field with Path] & "\" & [Field with file name] & "." & [Field with type]

 to get a full specification (and there might be some variation to that depending on how you've stored things).

  But I can't tell you the rest without knowing how the tables are related.   If their not in anyway, then simply show them in the query designer with no joins.   This is a Cartesian query and will give you one record in the result set for every possible combination between the three tables.
