CDaoRecordset to edit multiple tables

I have an Access DB with 3 tables.  I used the ClassWizard to create a class derived from the base class of CDaoRecordset.  My goal is to write records to the three tables, however, within "CDaoRecordset::GetDefaultSQL()" , I am only allowed to define 1 table name to edit.  Hence, the only solution I can clearly see is to create 3 different CDaoRecordset classes and open and close the .mdb file each time I need to switch to a different table.  That way seems very inefficient.  Is it possible to access different tables within the same file and class?  How?  I am just starting to learn about databases, so any code would also be a big help.

CDaoRecordset only works on one recordset.

You can't directly work on more than one table. However, if you can set up an editable view in your database, you can attach the recordset to that editable view and work against it. It can then cause edits to happen in as many underlying tables as you want.

Setting up an editable view is very dicey: you have to conform to lots of semantic rules, both for your database model and for the limitations of the underlying DMBS (which is Jet).

You answered my question, thanks, however I don't know  what you you mean by "editable view"(remember I'm new to databases and CDao* classes).  Anyway, I was hoping for more guidance like I web site with an example or sample code.  By the way, I've used you book as reference for other things and think it's helpful.
