The INNER JOIN is the most common type of join. Inner joins combine records from two tables whenever there are matching values in both tables.
The LEFT JOIN operation will create a left outer join. This will include all the records from table1 (left), even if there are no matching values for records in table2 (right).
The RIGHT JOIN operation will create a right outer join. This will include all of the records from table2 (right) of two tables, even if there are no matching values for records in table1 (left).
You can join any two numeric fields of like types. For example, you can join on AutoNumber and Long fields because they are like types. However, you cannot join Single and Double types of fields.
