I have a ADOBD recordset that i have populated with some data and would like to read or copy its contents into an Accesstable.What is the best way of doing this. I ma using Access 2000.

Use INSERT INTO SQL statement:
Syntax: INSERT INTO tablename(fieldname1, fieldname2) VALUES(value1, value2)

1). Create a recordset on Oracle table
2). Use a Do Loop or For Each or... to iterate the Oracle records
3). Execute an Insert SQL for the records
4). Repeat til no more records
...

Example:
rst.MoveFirst
Do until rst.EOF = True
   strSQL = "INSERT INTO tablename(fieldname1, fieldname2) VALUES('" & rst!value1 & "','" & rst!value2 & "')"
   CurrentDb.Execute strSQL
   rst.MoveNext
Loop

The easiest way to get the data into Access is to link the table via ODBC.  First create a new ODBC source for the table.  Next go to Access and open a new table.  On the file menu choose Get External Data.  Choose "link table" and select the ODBC source that you have just created.  Access will display the table data

Hi!,
Thanks but the reason why i am doing it this way is because i tried the ODBC way and linked to the Orcale table straight away but it was not reliable sometimes it worked others it did not.And i was always getting an ODBC call fail error.

Thanks

Amended:

Use INSERT INTO SQL statement:
Syntax: INSERT INTO tablename(fieldname1, fieldname2) VALUES(value1, value2)

1). Create a recordset on Oracle table
2). Create a connection or database collection for Access DB.
3). Use a Do Loop or For Each or... to iterate the Oracle records
4). Execute an Insert SQL for the records
5). Repeat til no more records

Example:
...
'ADO connection to access ODBC Datasource example
conn.ConnectionString = "DSN=accessDB"
conn.open
...
rst.MoveFirst
Do until rst.EOF = True
   strSQL = "INSERT INTO tablename(fieldname1, fieldname2) VALUES('" & rst!value1 & "','" & rst!value2 & "')"
   conn.Execute strSQL
   rst.MoveNext
Loop
...
conn.close
set conn = nothing

Here is the other one you created, and is also still open today.

They were duplicate questions, but experts apparently didn't know it and helped you in both of them.

Please advise.
