Hi IlijaK,

How are you filtering the form? A query will "filter" the table and use that as the datasource for the form. that is the usual way to go.

I ment i have a form based on a query and in that form various buttons to filter it. Now I would like to make a table from that filtered (using the form) query if possible

Hi IlijaK,
I guess I would use a button that fires a make table query, using the same criteria that your filter button uses. This could be added to the existing query(s) as a where clause in the SQL, and you could easily work it out in the access query wizard gui.

Use BobLamberson's idea for user generated tables, else use a form handler. But I would go for Bob's idea.

Just to add, the sql would look something like this

SELECT field1, field2, field3
FROM table1
INTO newtable

As simple as that, simply add the INTO table in your current sql

I'll try it out today,
thank you rockiroads

but from the look at it only works to transfer items from one table to another. I need it to transfer data from a filtered query (filtered in a form) to a table

That's exactly what rockiroads' code does. It "Selects" the data "Into" this new table. (by default it "creates" the new Table)

(just a clarification)
