Would it be okay to insert from one table to another when the col are different or do they have to be the same.  Where in the property should the action happen?

the names of columns may not be the same, BUT the number of columns must be the Same and the Data types must be the same.

The order of the values clause and the select clause are what matters

insert into t1 (col3,col1)
select col2,col4 from t2

In this case col2 gets inserted in col3 of the table t1 and col4 gets inserted into col1 of t1.

Datatypes should be the same or coercible (e.g. numeric to string, but not alphanumeric string to numeric);.

So should I use a COPY button to to copy that over...also...sorry forget this ..

Some of my fields that I need to copy are on the main form and others are the sub form.  Will that be okay?
