Creating a Query by Using a Wizard

The process of creating a simple select query by using the Query wizard is almost identical to that of creating a form by using the Form wizard. Within the Query wizard, you can build a new query based on one or more fields from existing tables or queries. You can also create Crosstab, Find Duplicates, and Find Unmatched queries with the wizard.

For Access to work effectively with multiple tables, it must understand the relationships between the fields in those tables.
