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.

Insert this in a query SQL view.
INSERT INTO DestinationTable (NameOfColumn1, NameOfColumn2) SELECT NameOfSourceColumn1,  NameOfSourceColumn2 FROM SourceTable
