Actually I have the same table in database1, contains data.
And I need to fill in the new table I just create it in database2 with the same data in database1.
In other word , I need to copy the table structure with the data in it from database1 to database2.
Is it possible to do so.

Of course.
You can create a table with:

Dim mySQL as String
mySQL = "INSERT INTO mynewtable FROM yourtable"
DoCmd.RunSQL mySQL
