Insert data from a datasheet on a subform into a table

I've seen other questions similar to this asked on EE, but none seem to fit the bill.

I have a form with a unbound subform. The subform is in datasheet view.  I would like to be able to loop through all the data on the subform after the users enters it and insert that into a table.

Not sure how to loop through the fields on a subform in datasheet view.

A single record?

Use expression builder to get your syntax right for the subform controls (drop a new control, goto controlsource, click on the 3 dots, poke around through the forms and double click on the control name)

Then in code you can build an insert statement. this will be long, i have examples of number, text and Date fields.

dim s as string

s = "Insert into table (col1, Col2, Col3) values (" & me.[SubformName].Form![ANumberField] & ", ' " & me.[SubformName].Form![ATextField] & " ' , # " & me.[SubformName].Form![ADateField] & "#)"
