I am sorry I did not mention the query is creating a table.  I get this error

Compile error:  argument not Optional

SELECT * INTO ALL_CLAIMS
FROM ALL_HCS_CLAIM
WHERE CLAIM_STATUS IN ('VHPA', 'VCB2')
ORDER BY SALV_OPERATOR;

To execute an append query you can use

Currentdb.Execute "Append_OTC" , dbFailOnError

You can also pass the sql

Dim strSQL as string

strSQL="SELECT * INTO ALL_CLAIMS FROM ALL_HCS_CLAIM WHERE CLAIM_STATUS IN ('VHPA', 'VCB2') ORDER BY SALV_OPERATOR"

Currentdb.Execute strSQL , dbFailOnError
