Experts, I am trying to create an insert query. I need to insert some data from a user form and then need to get some data from two other tables. I cannot figure this out. Is what I am trying to do possible?

Please Help...
        strSql = "INSERT INTO ProjectProfile (ProjectName,QuoteNumber,LogDate,Freight,FOB,LineItems,GroupTotal,TotalList,IncludeService,Discount," & _
                 "QuoteLife,Onsite,OffSite,Training,Overtime,Saturday,SaturdayOvertime,Sunday,Hold,Travel,WeekendTravel,Mileage,Software) " & _
                 "VALUES (" & _
                 "'" & txtProjectName.Text & "','" & txtQuoteNumber.Text & "',#" & Today & "#),(" & _
                 "SELECT Freight,FOB,Lineitems,GroupTotal,TotalList,IncludeService,Discount,QuoteLife FROM QuoteDefaults),(" & _
                 "SELECT Onsite,Offsite,Training,Overtime,Saturday,SaturdayOvertime,Sunday,Hold,Travel,WeekendTravel,Mileage,Software FROM ServiceRates)"

your question is a little unclear...
 are you asking for how to write the following query in VB.NET  Syntax ?

write a single select statement where you can pass first 3 values from the form values.
something like this..
Insert into ProjectProfile(columns...)
select txtProjectName.Text, txtQuoteNumber.Text, other columns...
FROM table

Plusone3055, I was hoping that my attempt to create this query would show what I wanted to do. This query does not work.  How should this be written so it works? I dont need any vb specifc syntax im just creating the string.

It should be possible (depending on the database you are using).

Try something like:
strSql = "INSERT INTO ProjectProfile 
SELECT '" & txtProjectName.Text & "', '" & txtQuoteNumber.Text & "', #" & Today & "#, t1.Freight,t1.FOB,t1.Lineitems,t1.GroupTotal,t1.TotalList,t1.IncludeService,t1.Discount,t1.QuoteLife,
				 FROM QuoteDefaults t1, ServiceRates t2"

Jayakrishnabh, this gave me an error at "Select Freight".
        'strSql = "INSERT INTO ProjectProfile (ProjectName,QuoteNumber,LogDate,Freight,FOB,LineItems,GroupTotal,TotalList,IncludeService,Discount," & _
        '         "QuoteLife,Onsite,OffSite,Training,Overtime,Saturday,SaturdayOvertime,Sunday,Hold,Travel,WeekendTravel,Mileage,Software) " & _
        '         "SELECT " & _
        '         "'" & txtProjectName.Text & "','" & txtQuoteNumber.Text & "',#" & Today & "#," & _
        '         "SELECT Freight,FOB,Lineitems,GroupTotal,TotalList,IncludeService,Discount,QuoteLife FROM QuoteDefaults," & _
        '         "SELECT Onsite,Offsite,Training,Overtime,Saturday,SaturdayOvertime,Sunday,Hold,Travel,WeekendTravel,Mileage,Software FROM ServiceRates"

>>I need to insert some data from a user form and then need to get some data from two other tables.

Is the data being inserted ONLY from the user form?
The get some data - is that after the INSERT have completed?

If the answer to both of the above questions is true then you need to perform the action in two (or more) distinct steps.  First run the INSERT SQL command then the SELECT command(s) to return the data.
