Hello,

I am appending records to an archive and want to assign the current date to a [Date_Archive] in the archive table.

Here is the append:
Insert Into Import_FC_Archive
Select Import_FC.*
From Import_FC

I am executing this saved append query like so:
Private Sub cmdImport_Click()
  Docmd.OpenQuery "qryAppend_importFC"

(I have a docmd transferspreadsheet after this) -  typing from phone

Thank you

it's unnecessarily to do it via coding.

go to the field's property. and set its default value to =Now()

and set it to =Date() if you want to insert date only.

I awarded points to Rgonzo because it is the answer to my question and I was not aware I could set the default value Ryan mentioned.  Even though Ryan's answer is a better one for me and it is the one I will use, I want to be fair as my quesiton only mentioned how to edit the VBA.  I always appreciate a more efficient way to performing a task.  Thank you  

any objections please let me know.
