Insert number of rows depending on value in quantity

Hi,

I need to insert records from one table to another depending on what the value is the Quantity field.

At the moment, it's only inserting one record for each line.  I would like to, if there is a value of more than one in the Quantity field, insert that number of rows.

Below is the code so far.

Many thanks :)

strSQL = "SELECT * FROM [Job Quotes Details] WHERE [SubID] = '" & nParentID & "';"
            objRS.Open strSQL, objConn
                  If Not objRS.EOF Then
                        Do Until objRS.EOF
                              strSQL = "INSERT INTO [Job Cost Sheets Details] ([Item],[Quantity],[Days],[Unit Price], Total, SubID) SELECT '"
                              strSQL = strSQL & Replace(objRS("Item"), "'", "''") & "', " & objRS("Quantity") & ", " & objRS("Days") & ", " & objRS("Unit Price") & ", "
                              strSQL = strSQL & objRS("Total") & ", " & nID & ";"
                              objRS2.Open strSQL, objConn
                              objRS.MoveNext
                        Loop
                  End If
            objRS.Close

Please try this code:

strSQL = "SELECT * FROM [Job Quotes Details] WHERE [SubID] = '" & nParentID & "';"
objRS.Open strSQL, objConn
      If Not objRS.EOF Then
            Do Until objRS.EOF
                
                  objRSQuantity = objRS("Quantity")
                  
                  for i=1 to objRSQuantity
                      strSQL = "INSERT INTO [Job Cost Sheets Details] ([Item],[Quantity],[Days],[Unit Price], Total, SubID) SELECT '"
                      strSQL = strSQL & Replace(objRS("Item"), "'", "''") & "', " & objRS("Quantity") & ", " & objRS("Days") & ", " & objRS("Unit Price") & ", "
                      strSQL = strSQL & objRS("Total") & ", " & nID & ";"
                      objRS2.Open strSQL, objConn
                      objRS2.Close
                  next
                  
            objRS.MoveNext      
            Loop
      End If
