Add strings to Each record in Access

As you can see that “Filter” query counts the repetition of each string.
What I want to do is to create another table with this query and do some access vba that changes the string in each record of the newly created table like this:

Filter
name      count
a                2
bb                2
ccc                 4
d                3

Now...........

A
bb
ccc

Becomes….

http://A.apsx
http://bb.apsx
http://ccc.apsx


So in essence, I am actually appending [http://] in the beginning and [.aspx] at the end of each record in a newly created table, along with the count column.
How that can be done in access vba? Please assist.

thank you

You just use a make table query..

SELECT [Name], "http://" & [Name] & ".apsx" INTO Newtable  FROM filter;


are you sure it's apsx and not aspx
