Do you mean save them into a table other than what the form is bound to?

The subforms recordsetclone can be used for this - it contains the filtered records:

Dim rs as dao.recordset
Set rs = Forms!yourformname.recordsetclone

dim rsOut as dao.recordset '<--- this is the table where you are saving records to
set rsout = currentdb.openrecordset ("YourTable", dbopendynaset)

if rs.recordcount = 0 then 
      Msgbox "no records in form"
      exit sub
end if

do until rs.eof
      rsOut.edit  ' or addnew if you are creating new records
      rsOut!Field1 = rs!field1
      rsOut!Field2 = rs!field2
      rsout.update
      rs.MoveNext
Loop
set rs= nothing
rsout.close
set rsout = nothing

Open in new window
