Look Up Values From One Table and Automatically Insert Them in Another Table

An append query automatically looks up fields that you select in one table and attaches them to another table within the database. Be careful though--once you make the attachment you cannot easily undo it.

Insert Into versus Select Into
I was using "SELECT INTO" in access 2007 to insert all values from one table into another. This function deletes the table then reinserts everything. If I wanted to use INSERT INTOand insert all values from 1 row of one table into another how would I write this?

insert multiple rows in access
I created a table with field names "id", "name", "score". Now I want to insert values for this table. I don't know how to do insert multiple rows into this table but I can do single as below.

I tried the below but it doesn't work
insert into table
values (1,'XYZ',55),
values (2,'xaz',73)

update vs. delete / insert
I have a table with only 1 record (and it will always have only 1 record.)
I'm looking for a method of updating the record's values by replacing them with the new values from a record in a second table (with many records). The record selected from the second table would be based on a option that the user selects on a form.

Currently, I have a delete and insert set of statements; however, a form which has this table as its record source is visible thru the process (of delete and insert) and I am able to get the form to requery to the new values (it seems to be getting lost during that perioid when the table has no record ?)

I had a thought that rather than delete / insert, I could use an update statement instead (?)
Q. Is there a way to use a wild card so that all of the fields in the record are upddated with values in the second table? (both tables have identical fields.)
Something like: UPDATE tbl1stTable SET * = * where <.&gt

Assign Values Automatically & Insert Records From Queries
I have queries to run records which do not match from 2 tables. These 2 tables are not related.

1. The records are considered closed orders so how do I get MS Access to update the status field in my Master Table as "Closed" automatically.

2. There are records that are new orders and I want to insert them into my Master Table for more monitoring. How do I insert these records that are ran from a query then?

Edit table only via forms
I have this form and onClick of the button a VB code is executed. The code contains an insert query to insert values in a table. But the user can also add values directly by opening the table (I've hidden the table, but still, its easy to unhide it and add values).

Is there any way to edit table only via forms? Like, if the user tries to add values directly in the table, he should get an error message.something like "U can't add values directly! Enter via forms" or something like that

Insert Into statement
I am trying to get an INSERT INTO statement going to save some data from a form back to a table.

The help in Access itself shows the following format for the INSERT INTO when of the fields in a table are going to be saved.

You can omit the field list, but only if you supply all the values that record can contain.

INSERT INTO tblCustomers VALUES (1, Kelly, 'Jill', '555-1040', 'someone@microsoft.com')

What i have put in as code is; INSERT INTO tblReviewers VALUES (Me.txtClaimRef, Me.txtDate, Me.cboReviewer, Me.cboHandler)

But whenever i put this in I get a "Compile Error: Expected: End of Statment" message box with the text "tblReviewers" highlighted. So far as i can see I have followed the format exactly and i'm not sure what i can do to get around this problem.

Automatically Add Predefined Values to a Table Field
Providing a choice of predefined values for a field is useful for table values that rarely change. For example, in a "salutations" column, you might enter predefined values of Mr., Mrs., Ms. and Dr. Then, when entering data, the user will be presented with a list of choices, and just needs to click the one to be used. You can create a field with predefined values either in Design view or Datasheet view. Here's how to automatically add predefined values to a table field in Microsoft Access 2003.

Here is my records to insert:
insert into animal (animal_id, name, species)
values ( (1,'Foxi Maxi', 'dog'), (2, 'Dodo',' duck') , (3, 'Garfield', 'cat' ) )

How do I INSERT the values of variables into an Access table using SQL?
I am trying to record certain incidents in my C# program, such as a user logging in or accessing the database.

I am attempting to use something like

1) OleDbCommand writeLogs = new OleDbCommand("INSERT INTO [LOG] (username, firstName, lastName, logDetails) VALUES (user, fName, lName, details);", connection);
but I get the error that "No value was given for one or more required parameters". The table that I am trying to insert the values into has Autonumber 'ID' followed by the username,firstName, lastName and logDetails fields.

Mixing Function Values and Table Values With INSERT INTO Clause
I've been driving myself up the wall trying to get this query to add both the values I'm after, but to no avail.

My goal is to add two values into a table; one from a separate table and another generated from a function. This is my SQL so far:


INSERT INTO tbl_Refunds (Item_ID, Fiscal_Month) VALUES (Item_ID, GetFiscalMonth(Date())) SELECT (Item_ID) FROM tbl_Payments ;

Every time I run the query, the missing semi-colon run-time error pops up (3137)! My first guess was that the SELECT clause doesn't have the same amount of fields since my GetFiscalMonth function exists only in module form and not on that table. I'm not too savvy on SQL,

Insert multiple records in Access 2003 using one INSERT statement
I have a form that has a start date, end date, project number, and total volume. These values are pulled from another form. Then depending on the difference between the start and end dates, that number of text boxes have their visibility set to TRUE and are displayed on the form.

The user then enters volumes for each of the months between the start date and end date.

I know that I can insert these records into a table one at a time using a loop,

1) For I = 0 To DateDiff("m",[start], [end])
2) INSERT INTO [table] (Column0, column1, .) VALUES (value0, value1 .)
3) Next
this would then prompt the user if they were sure they wanted to append 1 records yes/no, for every record. I would like to know if there was a way to just loop through the values and have one insert statement.

I have tried using UNION ALL it comes up with a syntax error, I have tried comma separating the groups of values it isn't supported by this version of SQL. I have looked over the internet but haven't found a suitable solution.
