Help with Relationships - Query and Table relationship

I am trying to design a query that works with a relationship between a
Table and a Query. I am comparing a value in the table with a computed
value inside the query.

The reason for this is that the Query calculates a field to become
identical to the corresponding table field, for instance:

Table 1 contains field "ID", which is WV008A00
Table 2 contains field "ID In", which is WV001000

In the query I created, I am using a function that converts Table 1's
ID to look identical to the records in Table 2. Namely, changing the
'8' to a 1' and the 'A' to a '0'. Let's call this Query calculation
field "FormattedI D"

Now, I need to relate the Query calculation field "FormattedI D" with
Table 2's "ID In" field and bring results from both tables.

If I make a relationship in the Relationships window between
"FormattedI D" and "ID In", the properties window for that relationship
is very limited. Everything is greyed out and the only property I can
change is the 'Join Type' button.

Also, after relating the query and table and running my new query, it
will return every record from the calculation query for EVERY record in
Table 2. For instance, if Table 2 returns 2000 results and the
calculation query returns 20, my new query generates 40,000 results.

Any help in what direction I should be taking with this would be most
appreciated. Also, I am fairly new at Access, but not VB programming.

I thought I was starting to get a handle on Access, until I tried doing something useful...now I'm stuck.

I've set Addresses as a Lookup Table - If the user starts typing in the SSN it should pull up the Employees records. I'm getting stuck in the Data Entry form. When I type in...

I'm totally new to relational database design. My boss has asked me to create a database of information on the employees in our group. Seemed to me like a simple application to learn the ropes.

I have a copy of the Access 2000 Bible, and it says, "When you create a relationship between...

I'm curious about your opinion on setting relationships. When I designed my first app in Access I'd go to Tools/Relationships and set the relationships. Over time I'd go into the window and see relationship spaghetti....tables/queries all overthe place with lots of relationship lines between here and there. After that first app I didn't do relationships. If I had a query, I defined the relationship. Many of the times when I create a...

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
