Using MS Access/Queries

Question
QUESTION: Hi,
I'm trying to create a table query that shows duplicate records from another table. I used the Duplicate Query Wizard but that won't create a table.
I would really appreciate your help.
Thanks

ANSWER: Why do you need a table? If the query returns the records you want, then why would you need to create a table with those records?

Hope this helps,

QUESTION: Thanks for your quick response. Actually I'm working on an Access assignment. The instruction says create a Make Table query that shows  employees with the same address. & I have an Employee table to get the information from.

Answer
You should specify that this is a homework assignment, not a real world application.

If the query produces the results you want, just change it to a Make Table query in Query Design mode.

Hope this helps,
