I don't think so with a single query.

You can use SQL statement OR  set up two append queries and run from VBA or a Macro.

Just do this:

    CurrentDb.Execute "AppendToTable1", dbFailOnError
    CurrentDb.Execute "AppendToTable2", dbFailOnError

But hiw would it append to the correct fields?  I need to have this because the fields do not match.

What we are suggesting is to create two append queries.  Design them to append to the fields in the tables as needed.
To use the append queries,
  you can run them individually,  
  you can use BA  code
    CurrentDb.Execute "AppendToTable1", dbFailOnError
    CurrentDb.Execute "AppendToTable2", dbFailOnError
  or you can create a macro to run the two queries.
You have an operational question on how to run two append queries and not a coding question on how to append to two tables.
Access desing mode will restrict you to append records to only one table.

Access query design view will restrict you to append records to only one table (which must already exist).
