Using the Create database nd Create tables, I create these along with fields to match an existing database with a different name. Is there an easy way to move data to the new database and wipe out the records from the existing one besides going through every field.
Thanks

You could use as following :

sSQL = "Select * from Table1"
set Record = DB1.OpenRecordset(sSQL, dbOpenDynaset)

if record.RecordCount > 0 then
   record.Movelast
   record.MoveFirst

   ' *** Ignore duplicates
   On error Resume Next

   For nI = 1 to record.RecordCount
      ' *** Construct here your insert
      sSQL = "Insert Into ....." & record("YourField")...

      DB.Execute SQL    

   Next

End If

Otherwise, your database are 2 Access database?

I successfully coded the area to delete all records from a table but I am still having problems copying the data from a table to a different database.  I am using this statement below but I keep receiving a syntax error. Can not figure out what is wrong.
Thanks

You should create the query like that :

dbCurrent.Execute "INSERT INTO CATEGORYGROUP IN PPRevenues " & cstr(Year(Date) - 1) & ".mdb select * from [categorygroup];"
