I want to add the current time to the end of the table that I am selecting into.  Right now I am only adding the date which comes out as: MyTable_20130111.  I would like it to have the date on the end as:
MyTable_20130111_10:38:00 PM.
Here is my code that I have now:
Function BkupLastEntry()
With DoCmd
    .SetWarnings False
    .RunSQL "SELECT * INTO MyTable_" & Format(Now, "yyyymmdd") & " FROM MyTable_EXTRACT"
    .SetWarnings True
End With

Have you tried something like:

Format(Now, "yyyyMMdd hh:mm:ss tt")

I when I add the time I get the message:
Run-time error '3067':
Query input must contain at least one table or query.

Can you post your code to take a look at it?

See if this makes a difference... it is probably choking on the punctuation (Access is picky about special characters in your object names).

Function BkupLastEntry()
With DoCmd
    .SetWarnings False
    .RunSQL "SELECT * INTO MyTable_" & Format(Now, "yyyymmdd_hhnnssAMPM") & " FROM MyTable_EXTRACT"
    .SetWarnings True
End With

If you must have some kind of delimiter to break up your timestamp, use an underscore instead of a colon:

Function BkupLastEntry()
With DoCmd
    .SetWarnings False
    .RunSQL "SELECT * INTO MyTable_" & Format(Now, "yyyymmdd_hh_nn_ss_AMPM") & " FROM MyTable_EXTRACT"
    .SetWarnings True
End With

Open in new window

On the "End With" statement, I get the following error:

Compile Error:

Expected End Function

Will this code work with Access 2007?
Function BkupLastEntry()
With DoCmd
    .SetWarnings False
    .RunSQL "SELECT * INTO MyTable_" & Format(Now, "yyyymmdd_hh_nn_ss_AMPM") & " FROM MyTable_EXTRACT"
    .SetWarnings True
End With

There is nothing version specific in that code so it should work in any version of Access.
