Append Query

I have a database that I need to run an append query from tblparts to tblworkordersub.  I have it working, the only problem is I need it to also append some of the textboxes from frmworkordersub.  I can not think of how to do this.  I have done this before many years ago, but can not remember what database app I did it in or how I did it.  So any help would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks in advance

In Access, isn't there a Query Wizard?  Or Append Wizard that does this for you?

Technically, in SQL, it is called an INSERT INTO Query..

Yes and I have done that this is the outcome:
INSERT INTO tblworkordersub ( Part, PartDollars, Labor, LaborDollars, Catagory )
SELECT tblparts.Part, tblparts.PartDollars, tblparts.Labor, tblparts.LaborDollars, tblparts.Catagory
FROM tblparts
WHERE (((tblparts.SercviceCode)=[Forms]![frmworkorder]![frmsubworkorder].[Form]![Catagory]));
But the problem is I need to insert 5 more fields into tblworkordersub that will come from the form frmsubworkorder.
This append query does work, but it is not carrying over the techs name, id, etc.  All that will come from the form frmsubworkorder.

While the actual SQL statement used is indeed INSERT INTO, in the Access UI it is referred to as an "append query".



Have you tried:

INSERT INTO tblworkordersub ( Part, PartDollars, Labor, LaborDollars, Catagory,
tech_name )
SELECT tblparts.Part, tblparts.PartDollars, tblparts.Labor, tblparts.LaborDollars, tblparts.Catagory, [Forms]![frmworkorder]![frmsubworkorder].[Form]![tech_name]
FROM tblparts
WHERE (((tblparts.SercviceCode)=[Forms]![frmworkorder]![frmsubworkorder].[Form]![Catagory]));
