Default Transpose Access Table / Query

Hi Duane,
Thanks for your reply.
I have been trying to get this to work for a few days without success so I have broken it down to a simple problem. I have a 3 column table
DATA1 DATA2 DATA3
-----------------
3 5 8
With aim of obtaining
Field1 Field2
--------------
Data1 3
Data2 5
Data3 8
I am new to Union queries and am assuming I have done something fundamentally wrong! What I have done is..

-Created my initial 3 column table and called it Z
-Ran New Queries in Design View
-Closed "show table" without opening anything
-Query Menu--SQL Specific--Union
-Entered the following Code
SELECT "DATA1" AS Field1,DATA1 AS Field2
FROM Z
UNION ALL
SELECT "DATA2",DATA2
FROM Z
UNION ALL
SELECT "DATA3",DATA3
FROM Z
UNION ALL
-Saved and ran the query and got the message-Syntax Error in Query. Incomplete Query Clause

Thanks for your time

It might help if you provided the actual table structures. It seems you have
worked hard to un-normalize your records and now want them normalized. This
is generally done with a union query like:
SELECT "SumofYear1" as Field1, Sumofyear1 as Field2
FROM queryUnnormal
UNION ALL
SELECT "SumofYear2", Sumofyear2
FROM queryUnnormal
UNION ALL
SELECT "SumofYear3", Sumofyear3
FROM queryUnnormal
UNION ALL
--- etc---
