I like to move a complete specific selected record in a form to table for archiving.

original table is called tbl_hw and archiving table is called tbl_hw_archive.
Both tbl_hw and tbl_hw_archive have the same filds.

How can I select on record and add this record including all filds to the other table and after this is done delete this record in the original table.

Best regards.

the SQL would look like this:

INSERT INTO tbl_hw_archive Select * from tbl_hw where tbl_hw.<PrimaryKeyField> = SomeValue


Not knowing what the fields are in your tables, you would replace .<PrimaryKeyField> with the name of the field in the table that is the PrimaryKey of that table, and replace SomeValue with the Primary_Key_Value of the record that you wish to copy to the archive table.

You cannot INSERT and DELETE from the same SQL.  Once you are satisfied that the record has indeed been inserted in the archive table, run a DELETE query on the original:

DELETE * from tbl_hw WHERE tbl_hw.pk = SomeValue

Reading it again, do you expect to perform this action by opening the table directly, or are you doing it from a form?

Both thanks for your advice forgot about using SQL in a form.

I did this:


Me.Painting = False
    DoCmd.Hourglass True
    DoCmd.SetWarnings False
    
    If (MsgBox("Wollen Sie den aktuellen Datensatz: " & Chr(34) _
            & Me![Temp_ID_Hardware] & " - " & Me![Temp_Model_Name] & Chr(34) & _
        " archivieren?", vbExclamation + vbYesNo + vbDefaultButton2) = 6) Then
       
        DoCmd.RunSQL "INSERT INTO tbl_hw_archive Select * from tbl_hw where tbl_hw.ID_Hardware = " & Me![Temp_ID_Hardware] & ""
        
        If (MsgBox("ACHTUNG!" & Chr(10) & "Wollen Sie den aktuellen Datensatz: " & Chr(34) _
            & Me![Temp_ID_Hardware] & " - " & Me![Temp_Model_Name] & Chr(34) & _
        " löschen?", vbCritical + vbYesNo + vbDefaultButton2) = 6) Then
            
         DoCmd.RunSQL "DELETE * from tbl_hw WHERE tbl_hw.ID_Hardware = " & Me![Temp_ID_Hardware] & ""
        
        End If
    
    End If
               
    DoCmd.Hourglass False
    Me.Painting = True
    DoCmd.SetWarnings True
    
    If Err = 0 Then
        MsgBox ("Der Datensatz wurde ordnungsgemäss archiviert und von der Haupttabelle gelöscht!"), vbInformation, AppName
        Me.Refresh
    End If
