You have multple tables, that contain similar information, you wish to concatenate, these fields and combine them all together into the one query and within that query in the one field. Wow, how does one start with that adding many fields from multiple.

Merge Data From Two Microsoft Access Tables into a New Table One of the most powerful features of Total Access Detective is its ability to combine (merge) data between the two tables you compared. This is extremely useful for reconciling changes made to two copies of the same table. The relationship between these two tables requires multiple fields from each table. You can start by dragging the CompanyID field from the CompanyContacts table to the ContactProducts table. Access 2010 opens the Edit Relationships dialog box.

Join two or more fields (columns) into one in Microsoft Access. A wizard guides you through the process of selecting fields (in a table) to be merged. The values in the selected fields will be combined and put into a new field of your choice.

In a relational database system like Access, you often need to extract information from more than one table at a time. This can be accomplished by using an SQL JOIN statement, which enables you to retrieve records from tables that have defined relationships, whether they are one-to-one, one-to-many, or many-to-many.

With

INNER JOINs

The INNER JOIN, also known as an equi-join, is the most commonly used type of join. This join is used to retrieve rows from two or more tables by matching a field value that is common between the tables. The fields you join on must have similar data types, and you cannot join on MEMO or OLEOBJECT data types.

To build an INNER JOIN statement, use the INNER JOIN keywords in the FROM clause of a SELECT statement.

This example uses the INNER JOIN to build a result set of all customers who have invoices, in addition to the dates and amounts of those invoices.

Be aware that the table names are divided by the INNER JOIN keywords and that the relational comparison is after the ON keyword. For the relational comparisons, you can also use the <, >, <=, >=, or <> operators, and you can also use the BETWEEN keyword. Also note that the ID fields from both tables are used only in the relational comparison; they are not part of the final result set.

To further qualify the SELECT statement, you can use a WHERE clause after the join comparison in the ON clause.

The following example narrows the result set to include only invoices dated after January 1, 1998.

When you must join more than one table, you can nest the INNER JOIN clauses. The following example builds on a previous SELECT statement to create the result set, but also includes the city and state of each customer by adding the INNER JOIN for the tblShipping table.

Be aware that the first JOIN clause is enclosed in parentheses to keep it logically separated from the second JOIN clause. It is also possible to join a table to itself by using an alias for the second table name in the FROM clause. Suppose that you want to find all customer records that have duplicate last names. You can do this by creating the alias 'A' for the second table and checking for first names that are different.

OUTER JOINs

An OUTER JOIN is used to retrieve records from multiple tables while preserving records from one of the tables, even if there is no matching record in the other table. There are two types of OUTER JOINs that the Access database engine supports: LEFT OUTER JOINs and RIGHT OUTER JOINs.

Think of two tables that are beside each other, a table on the left and a table on the right. The LEFT OUTER JOIN selects all rows in the right table that match the relational comparison criteria, and also selects all rows from the left table, even if no match exists in the right table. The RIGHT OUTER JOIN is simply the reverse of the LEFT OUTER JOIN; all rows in the right table are preserved instead.

As an example, suppose that you want to determine the total amount invoiced to each customer, but if a customer has no invoices, you want to show it by displaying the word 'NONE.'

Several things occur in the previous SQL statement. The first is the use of the string concatenation operator '&'. This operator allows you to join two or more fields together as one string. The second is the immediate if (IIf) statement, which checks to see if the total is null. If it is, the statement returns the word 'NONE.' If the total is not null, the value is returned. The final thing is the OUTER JOIN clause. Using the LEFT OUTER JOIN preserves the rows in the left table so that you see all customers, even those who do not have invoices.

OUTER JOINs can be nested inside INNER JOINs in a multi-table join, but INNER JOINs cannot be nested inside OUTER JOINs.

The Cartesian product

A term that often comes up when discussing joins is the Cartesian product. A Cartesian product is defined as 'all possible combinations of all rows in all tables.' For example, if you were to join two tables without any kind of qualification or join type, you would get a Cartesian product.

This is not a good thing, especially with tables that contain hundreds or thousands of rows. You should avoid creating Cartesian products by always qualifying your joins.

The UNION operator

Although the UNION operator, also known as a union query, is not technically a join, it is included here because it does involve combining data from multiple sources of data into one result set, which is similar to some types of joins. The UNION operator is used to splice together data from tables, SELECT statements, or queries, while leaving out any duplicate rows. Both data sources must have the same number of fields, but the fields do not have to be the same data type. Suppose that you have an Employees table that has the same structure as the Customers table, and you want to build a list of names and email addresses by combining both tables.

To retrieve all fields from both tables, you could use the TABLE keyword, like this.

The UNION operator will not display any records that are exact duplicates in both tables, but this can be overridden by using the ALL predicate after the UNION keyword, like this:

The TRANSFORM statement

Although the TRANSFORM statement, also known as a crosstab query, is also not technically considered a join, it is included here because it does involve combining data from multiple sources of data into one result set, which is similar to some types of joins.

A TRANSFORM statement is used to calculate a sum, average, count, or other type of aggregate total on records. It then displays the information in a grid or spreadsheet format with data grouped both vertically (rows) and horizontally (columns). The general form for a TRANSFORM statement is the following.

An example scenario could be if you want to build a datasheet that displays the invoice totals for each customer on a year-by-year basis. The vertical headings will be the customer names, and the horizontal headings will be the years. You can modify a previous SQL statement to fit the transform statement.

Be aware that the aggregating function is the Sum function, the vertical headings are in the GROUP BY clause of the SELECT statement, and the horizontal headings are determined by the field listed after the PIVOT keyword.
