Squirt query result into new table

THis must be simple but nothing in the right click
seemed to let me put the results of a query into a table instead of
first putting it into Excel.

You've lost me. We're not looking over your shoulder at your computer
screen. You need to explain clearly what you are trying to do.
For one thing, there is nothing that I can run in Access that forces my
results to go into Excel that I can think of. Of course, I have not been
developing in Access for several years so I might have missed something.

There are two ways the result of a query can be put into a table:
1. An insert (Append) query - it requires an existing table be in place. The
syntax is:
insert into tablename (<column list>)
select <column list> from ...

2. A Make-Table query - it fails if the table already exists. Its syntax is:
select <column list>
into New_Table_Name
from ...

Thanks. Is it possible to insert and create in the same step?

I am thinking to merge the earlier two tables by creating a new
one rather than concatenating one to the other.
(N A B + N C D -> N A B C D)

eg
Create and insert into t3
Select t1.n, t1.a, t1.b, t2.c, t2.d from t1 inner join t2 on t1.n=t2.n

But this will be a million records (all the fields of each record
would add up to 500 chars).

Only with a Make-table query as I described.

Why bother? Just create a view that joins them as John Vinson recommended in
his reply to your other thread. You should really respond to his questions
if you need further help with this

Thanks. Yes, I am still unaccustomed to the idea of refering to a query like
it was a table, simple tho it is.

Well, if you continue working with relational databases, it will become
second nature. I have yet to encounter a database product that did not allow
views to be used as tables in sql queries.
Do you have the same issues with subqueries that generate derived tables? It
is certainly possible to write this instead of using a saved query:

select * from (
select t1.N, A, B,C,D from t1 join t2 on t1.N=t2.N) as q


The only difference is that you would have to retype that subquery in every
query you write that needs to use the results from it. Whereas if you create
a saved query (a view), you can simply used the saved query in all your
queries.

Many THanks. I learned IBM Mainframe SQL in 1986
and the word view wasn't obvious until you defined it in the last post.

Incidentally, does this at all explain why Access queries appear as tables in
OPenOffice? (or at least in 2008 it did).

I don't know, I've never used that. It makes sense, though - one of the
ANSI-SQL requirements is that the database engine is able to treat views as
tables.
