I can't seem to get the syntax correct for this query in vba.
Any ideas?

Dim strsql As String
      strsql = "INSERT INTO tbltrad_commandes_FPdetails" & _
      "(trad_commandesID,ContractQuantity,ContractPrice,NegociatedRate,tmpSelect) " & _
      "(SELECT " & Forms![frmtrad_commandes2]![trad_commandesID] & ",ContractQuantity,ContractPrice,NegociatedRate,-1 " & _
"FROM tblTranslationContractPricing WHERE ContractQuantity = " & arr(i) & " AND Active = True)"

strsql = "INSERT INTO tbltrad_commandes_FPdetails" _
          & "(trad_commandesID,ContractQuantity,ContractPrice,NegociatedRate,tmpSelect) " _
          & "SELECT " & Forms![frmtrad_commandes2]![trad_commandesID] _
                               & ",ContractQuantity,ContractPrice,NegociatedRate,-1 " _
          & "FROM tblTranslationContractPricing " _
          & "WHERE ContractQuantity = " & arr(i) & " AND Active = -1"

I removed a set of () around the SELECT statement, and did some reformatting (the way I prefer), but I think your main problem was the ( ) around the SELECT statement.

worked perfectly. thanks for the extra format help.

the only thing I changed was from Active = -1 to Active = True.
For some reason the -1 did not convert well.
