First you need to decide which method is best.  This link will help with that -

Here's a link to one that is already built that you can add to your application.  It does require you to make changes to your code but is probably easier than building it yourself.

Sure.  First you need to create make-table queries.  To do that open the QBE and chose the first of your select queries.  Change the query type to Make-table and enter a table name.  Then do the same for each of the other queries.

With your form in design view, select your button.  press the builder button at the right edge of the Click Event box.  If given the choice, choose code.  You will be placed in a code module.
Enter one line of code for each query you want to run.  Change the query names to the ones you used when you saved the queries.

docmd.OpenQuery  "qMakeTable1"
docmd.OpenQuery "qMakeTable2"
docmd.OpenQuery "qMakeTable3"
....


When you run the code, you will get warning messages from Access telling you that you are making a table, blah, blah.  If you don't want to see them you can suppress them but don't forget to set them back on or you'll be sorry.


DoCmd.SetWarnings (False)

docmd.OpenQuery  "qMakeTable1"
docmd.OpenQuery "qMakeTable2"
docmd.OpenQuery "qMakeTable3"

DoCmd.SetWarnings (True)


Now comes the advice - you probably don't need to make all these extra tables plus they will bloat your database.  If you want the separate data for reporting or exports, simply use queries with selection criteria.  In Access, select queries are almost always interchangeable with tables so what you can do with a table, you can do with a select query without the bloat.

Thanks for your valuable time, I am sorry may be my question was not clear but thanks for your reply... We have created tables..
My requirement is to save the history of a particular record (for example - room).
Some times the room functions - users or other related things can be change. But the management should be able to see the history of a that room based on a two date ranges, for example history of that room between 2011 January and 2013 January. Can you please advise me the best way to develop it?  I have now one table for room and another one for functions. Is it good to combine those tables to one table? Please help..
Thanks

If you are creating history records each time something changes, you would use queries against your history table to produce reports for a point in time.  Usually, you don't archive data (create history tables) unless/until you end up with too much history that is no longer interesting but you still want to keep it.  Depending on the application, this might be anywhere from 1 month to 5 years.  Volume of data also impacts the decision regarding how long to keep history in the active tables.

Are you asking how to create the history records?
