I am developing an Access application using an ADP file with Access as the front end and SQL Server as the back end database.

In the Access application I use VBA code. In the following IF statement, I perform 2 successive
SQL Statements. When the compiler executes the 2nd SQL statement:

I get a Runtime Error '2714'.
There is already an object named 'tblBrMiss' in the database ?
The first SQL statement is a SELECT INTO.
The second SQL statement is INSERT INTO    SELECT FROM.
If Me.Frame472.Value = 1 Then
      str_sql = "SELECT distinct Left(tblTSpringSpLNExp.[CPS Account Number],3) AS NameOfTheColumn INTO dbo.tblBrMiss from tblTSpringSpLNExp" & _
      " where Left(tblTSpringSpLNExp.[CPS Account Number],3) not in " & _
      "(SELECT branch from tblPSEmail) order by Left(tblTSpringSpLNExp.[CPS Account Number],3)"
      DoCmd.RunSQL (str_sql)

      str_slq = "INSERT INTO dbo.tblBrMiss SELECT distinct BRANCH from dbo.tblPSEmail where emailadd Is Null or costcenter is Null"
      DoCmd.RunSQL (str_sql)
End If
