need to append a table with data the user supplies

I need to be able to append a table  (W_Tbl)  with input from the user.

I want to have the user give date (W_Date)  and medication (W_Type)

then select age (Birth_Date)  to select the records to append in the table.

I am only familiar with forms and queries not VBA so will need explicit help, please.

You may be able to do what you need with an append query that uses form references for the criteria.  

You may only need one line of VBA code to execute (run) the query.

CurrentDb.Execute "your query name here"

Can you explain   form references and how to do that please
Boyd (HiTechCoach) Trimmell, Microsoft Access MVPDesigner and DeveloperCommented:
See if this helps:

You have a form named frmImportW

On the form you have a text box control named: txtWDate

To reference the text box control from a form, report, or query you would use: Forms!frmImportW.txtWDate  

For example:
n a query the selection criteria (WHERE clause) would include:

Query Designer:
WHERE W_Tbl,W_Date = Forms!frmImportW.txtWDate 

Open in new window

In VBA code it would be

".... WHERE W_Tbl,W_Date = #" & Forms!frmImportW.txtWDate & "# ...

Open in new window

TIP: The delimiter for the date/time data type is #.
