  • If you already have the two tables in the query and they are joined by ID, then just drag the description field from table B down into the query.

  • Based on your initial question and this one, I strongly suggest you first learn something about ACCESS and how to construct and use a table. This will get you started:

  • Hi FSalgueiro,

    From your above description , I can understand that you are able to do something like below.

    what I did not understand that ,"the problem is that I have 20 fields ID, and I have to do the same process for each field".

    do you mean you have 20 columns for ID ?

    if possible then try to provide your both table design , it is better if you post image too.

    so that we can try to see what actually you are trying to do.

    if you are using 20 Columns as ID then I think that you need to properly design your database.

    generally we use only 1 ID field in table.

    also try to post your query so that we can make a test with your query and try to check if there something wrong with it.

    if I misunderstand something in your above description then please correct me.

    we will try to check it again and try to provide you further suggestions.
