I have an existing access table and I want to write an append query but i want to add these records between other records. I have them with record IDs so lets say i have records 1 -250 and I want to insert records at 25 how would i do that?

If your database is written properly then you shouldn't have to - can you give a little more detail

ok I have a table that has a fields called ID and I have it set to auto number so everytime a record is entered it increases by 1. I just found several records that were misplaced and i would like to get them in the database table in the proper order and to do that just an append will not work. I want to append them to a specific row. for instand I want in insert a record at 25 and thus making the current record 25 record 26 and the new roecord I am appending 25.

jlcannon,

Out of curiosity, why does it matter?  An autonumber has no significance beyond providing a guaranteed-to-be-unique value.

Yes, you can insert with a specified value for the autonumber column, but IMHO you shouldn't, because the actual value of the autonumber is irrelevant and should not be invested with any semantic value.  Take that answer back :)
