I am creating an Access application with Access as the front end and SQL Server as the back end database.

I have an existing table named tblA with 3 fields as follows:

field1 defined as int 4, Identity field
field2 defined as type float(8)
field3 defined as type nvarchar(10).

I have another table named table tblB with 2 fields as follows:
field2 defined as type nvarchar(9)
field3 defined as type nvarchar(10).

I want to append the records from table tblA into table tblB.
Do you know how I could accomplish this ?

Can you give some example data for both tables? Do you want to put the float values from tblA.field2 in tblB.field2, but then as nvarchar? IF this is the case, you could do the follwing:

INSERT INTO tblB(field2, field3)
SELECT cast(field2 as nvarchar(9)), field3 from tblA
