    Depends on what the other database is.

    Access has the ability to import dBase, Paradox, Excel, HTML, Text and any
    database that has ODBC drivers.

    If your database is something other than that, perhaps it can be exported to
    a format that Access understands.

    Thank you very much Douglas J. Steele for your help. Noe is there a way that
    I can get this to work like :
    I have amount and date that I would like to run toghether, I mean when I
    search for a member ID, I can see the ID combine with the date. You see I
    have to build this for my church and I have to search for a especific mamber
    offering for the month showing weekly. Do you think you can help me out on
    that?

    Thanks again very much

    You'll have to give details of how your tables are structured, with some
    sample data and an example of what you want returned.
