Default Combine tables

I have two tables that are identical except they contain differant records.
What is the easiest way to combine them into one?

use an append query but make sure you have a unique identifier for each row

Rose,
Create an Append Query to add the records from one table into the other.
Make sure you backup both original tables before doing the Append.
