Question MS Access VBA/SQL - Incomplete Query Clause

Hi there,

I've been working on some code and I've had a few issues with it. It's now got to the point where it appears to be very close to working, but I keep getting the Incomplete Query Clause error message. Can anybody help?

Code below:

Private Sub Command83_Click()

Dim strSQL As String
Dim strCriteria As String

strSQL = ""
strSQL = strSQL & " INSERT INTO '[Merchant CCF]([Merchant Name][Merchant Type][Partner][Merchant Sector]')"
strSQL = strSQL & " SELECT ([Merchant Name][Merchant Type][Partner][Merchant Sector])"
strSQL = strSQL & " FROM [Main table]"
strSQL = strSQL & " WHERE ((([Main table](ID)) BETWEEN 1 AND 5000 AND (([Merchant CCF](Test_ID)) BETWEEN 1 AND 5000)));"
DoCmd.RunSQL strSQL, False

End Sub

Did you try to look at the value of strSQL?
If you are dynamically buiding a query and it fails that should be the first thing you do. Here is what your query looks like:
INSERT INTO '[Merchant CCF]([Merchant Name][Merchant Type][Partner][Merchant Sector]') 
SELECT ([Merchant Name][Merchant Type][Partner][Merchant Sector]) 
FROM [Main table] 
WHERE ((([Main table](ID)) BETWEEN 1 AND 5000 AND (([Merchant CCF](Test_ID)) BETWEEN 1 AND 5000)));
See anything wrong with it? This is what it should look like:
INSERT INTO [Merchant CCF] ([Merchant Name],[Merchant Type],[Partner],[Merchant Sector]) 
SELECT [Merchant Name],[Merchant Type],[Partner],[Merchant Sector]
FROM [Main table] 
WHERE [Main table].ID BETWEEN 1 AND 5000 AND [Merchant CCF].Test_ID BETWEEN 1 AND 5000;
Another problem you have is you do not reference the table [Merchant CCF] in the FROM part of your select statement. You need to create a join between [Main table] and [Merchant CCF]. Finally, you shouldn't put all of those parenthesis in your where clause unless you actually need them. They just make it messier to read.
