I want to use an append querie, but I don't know how to design it because the data I have to add belong to more thant one table. Ex.: I want to add a new client in the "Client" table, and add at the same time more info on him in the "Caracteristics" table. How can I add my info so the relations between my table are respected (primary key and foreign key).

If you want to add information from another table into an append statement, you have to add sub-queries. See below...

update client
set name = (select name
            from characteristics ch, client cl
            where ch.keyvalue = cl.keyvalue)
where keyvalue = (select keyvalue
                  from characteristics ch, client cl
                  where ch.keyvalue = cl.keyvalue)

Or something like that... I think that should allow you to reference other tables from within your append query, thus allowing you to check key values etc.

As for adding data into two tables in the same query, I really don't think that can be done. Why not use two queries ? It will make your life much easier :)
