    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.
     
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!
