Insert table into backend database

I have an Access application that is split in a front end/back end configuration. Before a particularly large update procedure is called, I would like to save a copy of one of the back end tables in case the user input the incorrect parameters and the table needs to be restored to the previous version.

My question is: Is it possible to insert the table into the back end file from the front end?

*Bonus question: How does Access handle index fragmentation? Does Access rebuild the indices during a compact and repair?

Create a make table query in your front-end database.  During the process you'll see the option to create the query in another db (current db is default).

I'm not sure but I think the answer is yes.  Will need to do some checking.

Here's some info

Note the response in this forum Q that states indexes can be rebuilt in Access but there is often no need to do so because compacting does this anyway.  Seems to answer your question
