Access VBA: Insert statement using a stored parameter query

Hi.

In Access 2007, I want to insert rows into a table based on a saved parameter query that involves a union of many SELECT statements.

The query looks like this (+  6 more SELECTs):

SELECT
"DG1" As ["ID"],
Sum(IIf(Year([OrdrDate])=([Enter Year]-2) ,HDB.[GRQty],0)) AS ["prevYR2"],
Sum(IIf(Year([OrdrDate])=([Enter Year]-1) ,HDB.[GRQty],0)) AS ["prevYR"],
Sum(IIf(Year([OrdrDate])=([Enter Year]-1) AND Month([OrdrDate])<=([Enter Month]) ,HDB.[GRQty],0)) AS ["prevYTD"],
Sum(IIf(Year([OrdrDate])=([Enter Year]) AND Month([OrdrDate])<=([Enter Month]) ,HDB.[GRQty],0)) AS ["YTD"]
FROM HDB
WHERE
HDB.[GRQty] <= [Enter Bmax1] AND fmt = "DG"
GROUP BY 1

UNION SELECT
"DG2" As ["ID"],
Sum(IIf(Year([OrdrDate])=([Enter Year]-2) ,HDB.[GRQty],0)) AS ["prevYR2"],
Sum(IIf(Year([OrdrDate])=([Enter Year]-1) ,HDB.[GRQty],0)) AS ["prevYR"],
Sum(IIf(Year([OrdrDate])=([Enter Year]-1) AND Month([OrdrDate])<=([Enter Month]) ,HDB.[GRQty],0)) AS ["prevYTD"],
Sum(IIf(Year([OrdrDate])=([Enter Year]) AND Month([OrdrDate])<=([Enter Month]) ,HDB.[GRQty],0)) AS ["YTD"]
FROM HDB
WHERE
HDB.[GRQty] BETWEEN [Enter Bmin2] And [Enter Bmax2] AND fmt = "DG"
GROUP BY 1

which produces a tidy result set that I would like to insert into a summary table.

I'm having trouble approaching the logic of this -- both what is possible syntax-wise and what is most efficient.

- Is there a way to rewrite this SELECT into an INSERT query?
- Can you execute an INSERT statement  in VBA and call a stored query for the SELECT portion?
- Should I open this query into a recordset and then loop through some insert logic?


Many thanks.

something like, this is just the format,

you have to fill in the field names , represented by f1,f2,..fn  in the statement below

Insert into TableX(f1,f2,...Fn)
select a.f1,a.f2, ..a.fn
from
(
SELECT
"DG1" As ["ID"],
Sum(IIf(Year([OrdrDate])=([Enter Year]-2) ,HDB.[GRQty],0)) AS ["prevYR2"],
Sum(IIf(Year([OrdrDate])=([Enter Year]-1) ,HDB.[GRQty],0)) AS ["prevYR"],
Sum(IIf(Year([OrdrDate])=([Enter Year]-1) AND Month([OrdrDate])<=([Enter Month]) ,HDB.[GRQty],0)) AS ["prevYTD"],
Sum(IIf(Year([OrdrDate])=([Enter Year]) AND Month([OrdrDate])<=([Enter Month]) ,HDB.[GRQty],0)) AS ["YTD"]
FROM HDB
WHERE
HDB.[GRQty] <= [Enter Bmax1] AND fmt = "DG"
GROUP BY 1

UNION SELECT
"DG2" As ["ID"],
Sum(IIf(Year([OrdrDate])=([Enter Year]-2) ,HDB.[GRQty],0)) AS ["prevYR2"],
Sum(IIf(Year([OrdrDate])=([Enter Year]-1) ,HDB.[GRQty],0)) AS ["prevYR"],
Sum(IIf(Year([OrdrDate])=([Enter Year]-1) AND Month([OrdrDate])<=([Enter Month]) ,HDB.[GRQty],0)) AS ["prevYTD"],
Sum(IIf(Year([OrdrDate])=([Enter Year]) AND Month([OrdrDate])<=([Enter Month]) ,HDB.[GRQty],0)) AS ["YTD"]
FROM HDB
WHERE
HDB.[GRQty] BETWEEN [Enter Bmin2] And [Enter Bmax2] AND fmt = "DG"
GROUP BY 1
) as a

Thanks. I was trying to make that more complicated.

After I define the parameters, what method do I use to execute the query?

in VBA,
dim strSQL as string

strSQL="Insert into tableName(<fieldnames here>)" & _
          " select etc

currentdb.execute strSQL, dbfailonerror  '<<<
