I am trying to take all records that have a duplicate in a particular column and put them in a separate table. Is this possible? Please help with any ideas. Thanks.

Do you mean you are moving the entire record to another table? You can do using several methods; for example, you can use a SQL Insert command:

Currentdb.Exectue "INSERT INTO SomeTable(Col1, Col2, Col3) VALUES(SELECT Val1, Val2, Val3 FROM AnotherTable WHERE YourColumn=YourDuplicateValue)"

Use Access's find duplicates query wizard and then change the query type to a make table query.
