    Unanswered: help with make table query

    I am running a make table query using 1000 recorde, and when i click on the run icon, it tells me i am about to paste something like 900,000 records. i cant figure out why. ive done this same process a bunch of times, and it never happened until now. also, it is taking a DB that is 600k and making it like 325MB. I am stumped, and any help would be greatly appreciated.


    thanks

    Lightbulb You can try this solution:

    Change the Make-Table Query to Select Query and troubleshoot from there. The relationship may be wrong or a criteria. Once you figure out the problem, change it back to Make-Table Query.

    I hope this helps...

    Have you connected the tables to each other in your query? Or just put them without conecting them with the appropriate fields?
