Hi,
I would like to know how to copy some records from a table
to a new table (same structure) in a new database name.
Example
datebase name = toto.mdb
table = telephone_list

and I want to copy some record from TABLE "telephone_list" to a new TABLE name "telephone" in a new database name
"telephone.mdb"

Thank

You could probably export that table to a new .mdb.  Also, if you wanted to export just a few records, then you could probably do a select that gets the desired recs and export the resultset to a new .mdb.

Good luck!

Just like dudeman said, create the new table, open it as a recordset. open the source table as a recordset as well, and transfer the records using simple .AddNew calls to the new recordset

dim srcDB as database,trgDB as database
dim srcRS as recordset,trgRS as recordset
set srcDB=opendatabase("Source")
set trgDB=opendatabase("Target")
set srcRS=srcDB.openrecordset("Phone")
set trgRS=trgDB.openrecordset("Phone")
srcRS.Movefirst
do until srcRS.EOF
    trgRS.Addnew
    for i =1 to srcRS.fields.count - 1
       trgRS.fields(i)=srcRS.fields(i)
    next i
    trgRS.Update
    srcRS.Movenext
loop


This will copy all records from source to target
