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

DB.Execute " INSERT INTO Customers " _
            & "SELECT * " _
            & "FROM [New Customers];"

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.

You should create the query like that :

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