INSERT INTO SupplierContacts ( [Creditor No], OfficeNumber, FirstName )
SELECT Suppliers.[Creditor No], Suppliers.Phone, Suppliers.Contact

Try this

INSERT INTO SupplierContacts ( [Creditor No], OfficeNumber, FirstName )
SELECT Suppliers.[Creditor No] As [Creditor No], Suppliers.Phone As [OfficeNumber], Suppliers.Contact As FirstName
FROM Suppliers;

Key violations
Do you have any fields with no  duplicates allowed?

Key violations are caused by duplicate information being inserted.  You may have data in your Suppliers table that already matches the SupplierContacts.
