My question sounds simple but I really had a hard time to figure out it as I
am quite new to Access. I need join two tables. The two tables has two common
values (company and product) and I need both table's records to match both
common value before they can merger together. Here they are:

Table 1
Company/Product/Test1
1/1/*
1/2/*
1/3/*
1/4/*
2/1/*
2/2/*
2/3/*
3/1/*
3/2/*
3/3/*



Table 2
Company/Product/Test2
1/4/*
2/1/*
3/3/*

After merger, my result should be:

Company/Product/Test1/Test2
1/1/*
1/2/*
1/3/*
1/4/*/*
2/1/*/*
2/2/*
2/3/*
3/1/*
3/2/*
3/3/*/*

I know it is a outer join so I set up the join property with an arrow from
bigger table to smaller table. But after running the join query, it yields no
result to me. Thanks for your help!

Round to nearest half hour?
Use =MROUND(A2,"0:30") to round to nearest half hour. Use =CEILING(A2,"0:30") to round to next half hour.
I just tried a query based on your post, here's the SQL.

SELECT Table1.Company, Table1.Product, Table1.[Test1 ], Table2.[Test2 ]
FROM Table1 LEFT JOIN Table2 ON (Table1.Product = Table2.Product) AND (Table1.Company = Table2.Company);
