INSERT into table syntax

Using VBA code I want to insert records into a temporary table named "tblTempRunningNotes".  I want the records that get written to this table to come from another table named "tblMemberRunningNotes".  But I only want the records using Forms!frmFormName!txtMemberID.  (MemberID is the field in the source table.

I tried this with an make table query but am not pleased with the results because a memo field contents cut off at 255 characters so I'm hoping INSERT code will work better.

Incidentally, there will be one or more record related to MemberID.  I want all of them to be inserted into the temporary table.

The easiest way to build a query is to use the QBE.

1. Open the QBE and add the "from" table
2. Select the columns you want from it
3. Change the query type to append and choose the target table.
4. Assuming the column names are the same in both tables, Access will populate the Append To cell.  If the names are different, you will need to manually enter the target field.  
5. Add the selection criteria for MemberID -- Forms!frmFormName!txtMemberID
6. Save the query with an appropriate name.
7. Change your code to run this query.

Unreal.  That worked.  But I wonder why the make table query didn't bring over all of the characters in the memo field????

Thanks MUCH!!!
