Union query for countries table and sales data table

I have a table where users enter the sales forecast for each quarter for each country for each business type. I have another table which is the Country master which only has a country code and country name. Countries that have no sales are ignored. Not even entered as "zero". My problem is that I need to create a standard report with all the countries shown for each quarter for each business type including those that had no sales ( null ). I tried to create a query that uses all records from the country master and the matching records from the Sales forecast but that gives an error . I cannot create a union query using the country master and the sales forecast since the columns in the country master are only two while the sales forecast has many. Is there a solution?

Use an outer join. That's as specific as I can get. It would help if you posted the SQL you tried.

Sounds like you want an Left Outer Join or a Right Outer Join. Show the query you are currently using.
