Adding fields using VBA in Access 2007

In my database there is a table called "tbl_Shrinkage" which has the LineNumber, YearMo, HDLR fields that I need to use to tell the vba code what to add.  If the "YearMo" and "HDLR" and the line number is between 1 and 6, I need to total up the Prod_Lbs, SK_LBS, BF_LBS and put it in a table called "tbl_PutDataInto" and in that table for the line number field update that to a 7.  Essentially the YearMO and the HDLR fields have to be the same ie. I want the totals for Prod_LBS, SK_LBS, BF_LBS  for line 1 thru 6 for 201201 (the month of Jan.) for HDLR 020 and put it into a separate table using VBA.

I don't see why you would need code at all, but simply a query.

Start off building it step by step:

1. Construct a query that looks tbl_Shrinkage.  Make it a Totals query, grouping on YearMO and HDLR fields, a criteria on the line number, and total the Prod_Lbs, SK_LBS, BF_LBS fields.  Save the query.

2. Construct a Insert query to tbl_PutDataInto using query from #1 as a table, and insert the data into tbl_PutDataInto.

  You can execute query #2 from VBA or a macro.
