Please tell us what the errors are.  Not everyone can download your database.

While I am running the insert query through vba, its not appending to the table and shows no errors, so i tested it directly with the query (which got from immediate window) I am getting a big message including the errors type conversion violation - key violation - lock violation - validation rule violation etc. I checked the properties of each fields, but it seems ok there.

The problem is that the primary key field is not being filled.  Either change it to be an autonumber so it will automatically generate a new number for each insert or add the ID field to your append query.

Comments -
Access generates "ID" as the PK name because it can't possibly guess at a meaningful name.  You should change it yourself.  for this table, InventoryID would be a good choice.

I would suggest filling "empty" fields with null rather than zero length strings.  It can be problematic to allow both therefore, I always set the AllowZeroLengthStrings property to no to avoid the problem.  Either a field has a value or it is Null.  ZLS just adds one more thing you need to test for in your queries.
