MS Query not enabling join options when merging dbfs

Hi there,

I am trying to import data from 2 dbf files into excel using the 'get
external data' option which launches ms query. Ultimately I am merging
data with a right join statement.

I can successfully select the dbf files, and drag the common ID fields
to make a match, yet when trying to select the right join option, the
left and right options are both greyed out and cannot be selected. If
I type in the SQL manually, it works although i get the message 'cannot
display graphically'

Any ideas much appreciated.
