I have two Access 2003 tables one is called Forecast and the other is called PartForecast.  One of my users updated the Forecast table when he should of been updating the PartForecast table.  Attached is the database we are using.  I need to move the data he entered from the Forecast table into the PartForecast table for Fiscal year 2015.  Can someone please assist with a SQL query that will accomplish this?  Thanks!

The db is to large to upload.  I have created Excel sheets of the two tables in question.   Please see attached.

Create a copy of the database with just the 2 tables. Delete records leaving few records in each table (say 10 records each). Compact and repair.

Upload the copy and show how to find out which record is updated.

I tried to link the tables but there where too many records to handle. Also I have to make assumptions which the question did not make available.

I was able to upload the database.  Please feel free to do whatever you need to do to transfer the data from the Forecast table to the PartForecast table then send me the SQL snytax so that I can transfer the data here.  Thanks!!!

You need to execute this query:
INSERT INTO PartForecast ( FiscalYear, Mgr, Custcode, PSINO, AnnualVolume, Jan, Feb, Mar, Apr, May, Jun, Jul, Aug, Sep, Oct, Nov, [Dec], Obsolete, PNSI, PRICE, Updatedate )
SELECT Forecast.FiscalYear, Forecast.Mgr, Forecast.Custcode, Forecast.PSINO, Forecast.AnnualVolume, Forecast.Jan, Forecast.Feb, Forecast.Mar, Forecast.Apr, Forecast.May, Forecast.Jun, Forecast.Jul, Forecast.Aug, Forecast.Sep, Forecast.Oct, Forecast.Nov, Forecast.Dec, Forecast.Obsolete, Forecast.PNSI, Forecast.PRICE, Forecast.Updatedate
FROM Forecast
WHERE (((Forecast.FiscalYear)=2015));

Open in new window

And then, after the recods are inserted into PartForecast, delete from Forecast:
FROM Forecast
WHERE (((Forecast.FiscalYear)=2015));

Open in new window

Please make backup before executing these queries
