Troubleshooting Outer Join

    Hi

    I think you can't make to different joins from one table to other. The best way is to write SQL and execute through Add Command.

      Sorry I thought you were trying to join from two different fields from Primary to same filed in secondary.

      You should just be able to use a left outer join.

      Try removing table and adding back in again and rejoining with a left outer.
