copy from one table to another in access

I was given a table on access database that need to be exported into an existing database in access , the column names are different but the data will fit into the existing table,  there are however columns that will remain null.


How would I do this?  I cannot select copy past since the data is not same order,,,

you will need to create a query against the source table that will match the fields of the destination table.

if you find it difficult to do this, upload a copy of the source db and destination db.

I have both tables now in a same database.

But I need to copy fields from table 2 to table 1,

Is there any nechanism in access to do this , do I have to create a custom query???
