How to use "Insert Into" to programatically insert multiple fields into a table

CFW
I use the following flawlessly to insert a single field:

strSQL = "Insert into [_tblCasket] (Casket) Values " _
& "(" & conQuote & NewCasket & conQuote & ")"
Set db = CurrentDb

If MsgBox(NewCaske t & " is not in the list. Do you want to add "
& NewCasket & _
" as a new Casket/Container in the list?", vbYesNo, _
"Add a Casket/Container") = vbYes Then
db.Execute strSQL
Response = acDataErrAdded
Else
Response = acDataErrDispla y
End If

I can't figure out the syntax to insert into multiple fields?! Can I?
TIA!

From what I can tell you are simply not specifying multiple fields
there.
Then your values appear to be improperly formatted.

try:

strSQl = "INSERT INTO _tblCasket (field1, field2, field3 ... ) VALUES
{'" & varField1 & "' , '" & varField2 & "' , '" & varField3 & "');"

such that the concatenated string has the proper SQL format:

INSERT INTO _tblCasket (field1,field2, field3)
VALUES ('stringvalue1' ,#datevalue2#,n umvalue3);

keeping in mind that only string values need to be quoted, dates
should be bracketed by #01/01/2003# to preserve their formatting and
numbers need no qualifiers at all.

also remember to use [] if your field names match internal keywords
such as [Date] etc.

you mean you couldn't copy anything from an Insert query? Or the help
file? The help file is your friend!

INSERT INTO table (field1, field2, field3...) VALUES
(value1,value2, value3)

Is there a way in SQL Server 2000 to extract data from a table, such that the result is a text file in the format of "Insert Into..." statements, i.e. if the table has 5 rows, the result would be 5 lines of : insert into Table (, , ....

Good Day All, I have some EEO data in an old dBase4 database that I have converted to an Access table. Since dBase was not a relational database, I didn't create any key fields.

The Access employee data was also an old dBase...
