Using VB in MS Access to Insert Multiple Rows from a Query into a Table

Last Modified: 2021-04-21
I need to be able to insert muliple rows returned by a query into a seperate table, using VB code.

ie, when I click a button, it executes the query in the background. The query returns somewhere between 2 - 10 lines, each of which need to be inserted into a seperate table.

I have tried using DoCmd.RunSQL and Insert Into, but I can't seem to get it to work. (I assume I can only insert one row at a time using this.)

I was thinking about executing my query into a 2D array, then inserting each line into the database one at a time, but I wonder if there isn't an easier way.

Any ideas?
