If you have two different recordsets, one for each, you can update the fields in the recordset

rs1.field("name").value = "First"
rs1.update

rs2.field("name2").value = "Last"
rs2.update

You can also create two different INSERT or UPDATE statements, one for each table.

INSERT INTO table1 (name) values('First')
INSERT INTO table2 (name2) values('Last')

UPDATE table1 SET name = 'First'
UPDATE table2 SET name2 = 'Last'

Hope this helps

you can only INSERT into a singel table at a time.  It is not possible, with ONE insert statement. to insert data into two or more tables in the same SQL Statement.

Yeah You can do it Panesar
YOu have have to create a View of the 2 different tables into one view.
And with a single SQL statement you can insert into 2 different tables.
