Transfer records from one table to another

I am trying to select certain records from one table and then place ALL the values retrieved into another table.

For example, if I retrieve all the records (Text1,Text4,Text5,Text7) for Table A.  How can I save the records temporarily, so that I can close the current table and then open another table so that I can place all the data in Table B?

Hope that makes sense.  
If conn.State = adStateClosed Then
        conn.Open "Provider=sqloledb;Data Source=" & ConnectionIP & ",1433;Network Library=DBMSSOCN;Initial Catalog= CAPRegistration; User ID=sa;Password=xxxx"
        End If
        
        esql = "select Text1 , Text4, Text5, Text7 From tblRegistration Where Committee = " & ravi & DataGridOrganization & ravi

-Are both tables in same database  
-do you need to add extra field in table b

Can you use an select insert into?
INSERT INTO TABLEB ("Text1 , Text4, Text5, Text7) select Text1 , Text4, Text5, Text7 From tblRegistration

This way you can copy the records in one command and you don't need a loop
