Insert into table2 (values) Select * from table1

Hi,

In the database where you have the data, create the following query :

SELECT * INTO Table2 IN 'path_to_my_second_database'
FROM Table1;

(example of above path :)
SELECT * INTO Table2 IN 'C:\Documents and Settings\user\My Documents\Database2.accdb'
FROM Table1;

You didn't say which version of Access you are using, I tested this on Access 2007.
Here is the SELECT .. INTO syntax :

why dont you create the table in the other database, link it to your main database. So the actual table will reside in the main db and a link to that in the massive (slow) db.

Then when the updating time comes up, do a delete all query and add teh records.. This may be a way to get around your problem.. Give it a think!

I get the microsoft jet database engine has stopped the process because you and another user are attempting to change the data at the same time

if you want to append records to an existing table, use "Insert into ..."
see my post at http:#a34154694

the
"select into..." is a make table query, that will create the table in the other db.

Indeed, I confirm that the "Select .. into" creates the tables. But I thought that this is better than using "insert into.." because you don't need to create manually the table.

it would be better to create the table on the fly and delete each day with ne data.

What could be the possible causes of that error.
