Just link the tables instead. File > Get External Data > Link Tables.

you see in tabel A there is column of data type text, but i would like to change it to Date/Time data type because the column contains dates. and since i cannot change it in the source, I made another database B and Tabel B and in Tabel B the column named Date I changed it's datatype from Text to Date/Time. Also because the source (archive.mdb) gets replaced everytime the data type change will take effect until the entire file gets replaced it is going to go back to it orginial formate. Is there a way to just copy from Tabel A in database A to Tabel B in database B and keep the updates from A to B.

You can make Table B using a Make A Table query using the Linked Table A as the source and then use CDate([date]) in the query on the date field to change it from text to date.

If I wanted to be able to copy all of the tables in an existing database called Original.mde to another database called New.mde from a button click event in Original.mde, is there an easy way of coding it without naming every single table in Original.mde. I am looking for a way of updating a database on site without needing to access the database window and import the existing tables into a new empty database. dixie
