    I have two tables that are mailing lists for two separate events. They have
    the same core info (Firstname, Lastname, Addresss, ect). I would like to
    have a separate table that combines the two tables so I will know all those
    who have been invited our events.

    Event 1 (Table1) + Event 2 (Table2) = Everyone invited to both events (Table
    3)

    Can I do this? If so, how? I have been trying to mess around with
    "relationships" and "append queries," but I am getting very confused. Thank
    you!

    If the fields match data types you should be able use an append query to
    add one to the other or to add both to a new table.

    I might suggest that since you are likely to have some duplication that
    making a provision for that would be a good idea and I will also suggest
    that you may want to consider having only one table for all participants.
    You can then use the relational abilities of Access to keep track of who was
    at what event.
