you will need vba codes to do that

dim rs1 as dao.recordset, rs2 as dao.recordset, vArr() as string, j

set rs1=currentdb.openrecordset("table1")
set rs2=currentdb.openrecordset("table2")

do until rs1.eof
     varr=split(rs1![Measure],"&")
     for j =0 to ubound(vArr)
         rs2.addnew
         rs2!Mem_NO=rs1!Mem_NO
         rs2![Measure]=varr(j)
         rs2.update
     next

rs1.movenext
loop
0

Assuming you are savvy with talking to databases?

Public Function SplitMyValues

Dim rs as Recordset
Dim Measures() as String
Dim k as Long

'get the rs of Table1 here

With rs
Do until .eof
Measures = Split(!Measure, " & ")
For k = 0 to ubound(Measures)
sql = insert into Table2(Mem_No, Measure) VALUES (!Mem_No, Measures(k))
cn.execute sql
Next
.movenext
Loop
End with
