    Unanswered: Transferring Data in Access/VB6

    I am writing an app that processes fitness event results (running races, etc) and I have a 'raw' access database with a single table that collects data from my timer. I want to transfer that data periodically to another access database, or another table within the same access database, to make changes and still preserve the data in the original table. I need to do this in vb6 code. I am ok writing and reading the data. I just need some advice on the best way to get data from the original to the 'edit' table/db to make my changes.

    Any suggestions?

    Add Microsoft ActiveX Data Objects Library to your project (ADO) and then write the following code:

    Dim cn As ADODB.Connection
    Set cn = New ADODB.Connection
    cn.Provider = "Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0"
    cn.Properties("Data Source").Value = App.Path & "\test.mdb"
    cn.Execute "INSERT Table2 (Field1, Field2) SELECT Field1, Field2 FROM Table1"
    Set cn = Nothing
