Assuming this means replace all of Table1 records with Table2 records, that's Two queries:

DELETE * FROM Table1

INSERT INTO Table1 SELECT * FROM Table2

This assumes that the design of Table1 and Table2 are an exact match.

Not sure I understand here...?

What does "Copy and replace" mean? ...and how would you both Copy and Replace to another table?

Is your goal here simply to append data from one table to another?

If so then you must provide an example of both tables, (a small sample DB file would be best)  ...then post a clear graphical example of the *exact* result you need.

If you mean copy:

 DoCmd.CopyObject , "Table2", acTable, "Table1"

Are you wanted to update existing records in table2 with data in table1?

Update table1, table2 set table2.somefield = table1.somefield where table1.IDfield = tabl2.idField

Agree with  boag2000, "Copy and Replace" , I overlooked  this requirement.

A sample database with required output clarifies the issue.
