The syntax for that would be something like

INSERT INTO TableB (Field1, Field2, Field3)
SELECT Field1, Field2, Field3
FROM TableA
WHERE Field1 = 2

All you really need to do is add the INSERT line, with the name of the table you want to append to, and the fields you want to place the output of your query in.  Making sure that the field types in TableB and the query must match (but the field names do not have to).

Do you mean a new table or an existing table?

Go to Design Mode and

- If the former, click on "Make Table".
- If the latter, click on "Append".

Enter the table name.

I'll assume you are running a SELECT query
in design view of your query, change your SELECT query into an APPEND query
select the Destination table from the dropdown in the Append window

select the destination fields in the

Append to: row of the query

Do the Make Table or Append in a different query, based on your above query.

create a new query (DO NOT select any table), go to SQL view

copy the below sql and paste to the new query
select A.* Into NewTable
From

TRANSFORM Sum(Final_Table.[Total Initial]) AS [SumOfTotal Initial]
SELECT Final_Table.[Org Name], Final_Table.[CostCen], Final_Table.Fund, Final_Table.PEC, Final_Table.BC1Chng1, Final_Table.BC2Chng1
FROM Final_Table
GROUP BY Final_Table.[Org Name], Final_Table.[CostCen], Final_Table.Fund, Final_Table.PEC, Final_Table.BC1Chng1, Final_Table.BC2Chng1

if you have saved your crosstab quey, you can use

'create new table

SELECT crosstabquery.* INTO NewTable
FROM  crosstabquery

or
'append to your table
 
INSERT INTO NewTable
SELECT crosstabquery.*
FROM crosstabquery

change  "crosstabquery" with the name of the crosstab query
