insert unbound text and combo box value into a table

Hello,

There are several answers listed to this question, but they are too complicated for me.  Therefore can someone suggest a simple answer.  I am also very new to vb.

I have a form and a subform.  Within the subform I have one combo box and one text box.  When I input these values, I want to add a new record with these values to an existing table.  I have a command button to do this.

Thank you in advance
Joy

My example:
Created table (Table1) with two fields   combofield and textfield
Created form (frmTest) with two fields   combo1 and txtfield
Form also has a button that runs the query (Query1)

So, when you choose from the combobox and then enter into the text field you hit the button to run the APPEND QUERY (Query1) the info you selected/entered is appended to the destination table (Table1).

Here is the literal SQL code for the Query1

INSERT INTO Table1 ( combofield, textfield )
SELECT [forms]![frmTest]![combo1] AS Expr1, [forms]![frmTest]![txtfield] AS Expr2;

Put this into your command button on_click event.  Replace uppercase words with the appropriate names.

dim SQL as string
sql = "insert into YOURTABLE (COL1, COL2)  values ('" & me.COMBOBOX & "','" me.TEXTBOX & "')"
currentdb.execute (SQL)

dqmq,
this is what I am looking for.  however it gives me a syntax error.  here is the code.
My table name is "Scans Main" with two fields "Barcode" & "OS".  I have a form with a text field "Text12"  and a combobox "Combo14".  I do not see where I am going wrong.

Private Sub Command0_Click()
Dim SQL As String
sql = "insert into Scans Main (Barcode, OS)  values ('" & me.COMBO14 & "','" me.Text12 & "')"
CurrentDb.Execute (SQL)
End Sub

You forgot the '&' before me.Text12

sql = "insert into Scans Main (Barcode, OS)  values ('" & me.COMBO14 & "','" & me.Text12 & "')"
