This is from a  Make Table Query in Access:

SELECT TblLPOLICY.POLNUM,
       TblLPOLICY.EFF_DATE,
       TblLPOLICY.EXP_DATE INTO TblClass056Policies
FROM TblLPOLICY
WHERE (((TblLPOLICY.COVERAGE)="056" Or
        (TblLPOLICY.COVERAGE)="057" Or
        (TblLPOLICY.COVERAGE)="135" Or
        (TblLPOLICY.COVERAGE)="136"))

If you omit the WHERE section, the query will put EVERY POLNUM from TblPOLICY
into TblClass056Policies...  Correct?

Another syntax:

SELECT TblLPOLICY.POLNUM,
       TblLPOLICY.EFF_DATE,
       TblLPOLICY.EXP_DATE INTO TblClass056Policies
FROM TblLPOLICY
WHERE TblLPOLICY.COVERAGE) IN ( "056" , "057" ,"135" , "136")

If you remove the WHERE section, it will make a table containing the POLNUM, EFF_DATE, and EXP_DATE fields and append all records to the new table.
