I have 2 data imports from excel.
I am trying to figure out a way to combine these two data sets and show a SUM for each MONTH
but the tables have no relation between them (other than date fields)

How could i combine these two data sets and show a balance for each month?  

I have attached a file with the 2 separate imports.  I am looking for better ideas than the one I have.  Your help is appreciated.

thank you

From

SELECT Format([Net due dt],"yyyy mm") AS YearMon, Sum(ImportAP.[Amount in local cur]) AS SumAmount
FROM ImportAP
GROUP BY Format([Net due dt],"yyyy mm")
Union ALL
SELECT Format([BegOfWeekDate],"yyyy mm") AS YearMon, Sum(ImportAR.ExpectedAmtRec) AS SumAmount
FROM ImportAR

Very nice as usual.  I checked the numbers and it was spot on.   I thought the solution might have been a union.   I need to learn more about them.  thank you sir!
