append query

    This is different but similar to another problem I sought advice on.

    If you have two tables, A & B, and they are joined with a left join in a
    select query, it will return all records in A even if there is not a matching
    record in B.

    HOWEVER, if I change the query to an append query and there are no matching
    records in table B, then the record in Table A will not be returned. How can
    I get around this so that a record that matches the parameter in A will be
    returned when there is not a matching record in table B? Thus it is not a
    matter of the field in table B being null, but rather that there is no
    matching record at all.

    In actuality there are about 5 tables joined and I am running an append
    query across them all and I would like to still return a record if it
    matches, for example, the parameters for tables A,B and C even if there is
    not a matching record in table D.

    Any ideas?

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
