Access VBA - Append query to append only records with 'new' ID

Access 2016. I have a table tblVolunteers, which is a permanent table of people. I need to import to it a new CSV I get every day. The new CSV has some new people, as well as some of the people already in tblVolunteers. I import The new CSV into another (helper) table tblVolunteers_NewCSV temporarily.

So I need to do an Append query to append records from tblVolunteers_NewCSV to tblVolunteers. But how do I only append those with new IDs? (There's a primary key field of ApplicationID in both tables. The structure of the two tables is the same)

Thanks for any help.

It would be helpful to have some info on the structure of you table but your query should be
INSERT INTO YourTable[(field1[, field2,field3...) VALUES ('Value1','Value2','Value3') WHERE [TheFieldToMatch] NOT IN (SELECT [TheFieldToMatch] From YourTable

Open in new window

INSERT INTO YourTable[(field1[, field2,field3...) SELECT (Fields From TheOtherTabel) WHERE  [TheFieldToMatch] NOT IN (SELECT [TheFieldToMatch] From YourTable

Open in new window

Thanks great, John!

I needed all the fields so deleted the Field List. That worked too.
