Union Query

Combine Records from Multiple Tables

 S  M  L  XL  FS  Join Now

In this video, I'm going to show you how to use a Union Query to combine the results from two tables with similar fields, such as customers and employees, into one dataset. 

Sara from Bar Harbor, Maine (a Platinum Member) asks: I've got a table for customers and a separate table for employees. Is there any way to join them together in a single query so that I can generate reports like mailing labels in one shot. Right now I have to do everything twice and have two separate reports for everything. 


Members will see how to easily edit the records in a Union Query. The results from a Union Query are not updateable, but I will show you how to create a listbox and then edit the selected record with either a popup form or a subform.

Nice tech help, thank you. I am trying to do the sub form with label technique you showed us at the end of ext. cut, okay so far but when I move from record to record I can't Requery, I have to click the label again, I put subform.Requery on form current event but somehow it's not working, what did I do wrong

Without seeing what you have / did it's impossible to guess what you should do / did wrong.   Are you getting any errors?
The only advice I can give you is watch the video again.  

Rather than play 20 questions, it is often helpful if you post screen shots of your form, code behind it, etc that would help us visualize what you are doing.

You can upload screen shots via the original post in the upper right hand corner.

Not interested unless the video incorporates Access such as a person fills out a form on the internet which updates an Excel sheet then brings the data into Access or something like this otherwise I am here for Access. Excel should be as separate channel in my opinion.
