Syntax error - INSERT INTO and SELECT statements

P: 5
I get syntax errors while trying to copy all data from a query into a table using INSERT INTO and SELECT.
Here are the lines:

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. INSERT INTO LoadTBTemp[(Data1[, Data2[, Data3[, Data4[, Data5[, Data6[, Data7[, Data8[, Data9[, Data10[, Data11[, Data12[, Data13[, Data14[, Data15]])]
  2.     SELECT [qryCpCpk.]Data1[, Data2[, Data3[, Data4[, Data5[, Data6[, Data7[, Data8[, Data9[, Data10[, Data11[, Data12[, Data13[, Data14[, Data15]
  3.     FROM LoadTB
Error for INSERT INTO: Expected: end of statement
Error for SELECT: Expected: Case

I'm still using ACCESS 2003 (VBA 6.3).

Would someone please kindly point out the problems or suggest a better codes for me? Thanks very much,

You have a bunch of extraneous square brackets.

Thanks for quick response. That's the exact brackets format from MS site.

You have misunderstood Microsoft's syntax.

That only designates that what follows is optional syntax. And if you choose to use the optional syntax, you don't use the brackets.

Please use code tags when posting code.

And show us the SQL for qryCpCpk and the table definition of LoadTBTemp.

I thank you for your time and patience. I have figured out a way around this problem, using Append Query.

But I have a quick favor to ask: is there command to merge fields of data into another field? This is my problem. I'm trying to calculate std. dev. of these 15 columns of data for a specific range of date. Since ACCESS 2003 only could do it for 1 field, I am trying to "merge" all 15 data fields into one and calculate from there. Is this possible?

I am sorry to ask too much. If you think I violate any rule here, please tell me and don't need to response to my programming ignorance. Thanks.

We don't allow separate follow-up questions in existing threads, aspecially when there is no obvious connection. We're happy to answer any properly expressed question though, as long as it's posted in its own thread.

As for the original question of this thread, I find it hard to accept that any problems you may have experienced after the code was changed for post #7 can be related to the code you're using. It seems to be fine and I certainly would not expect the original errors to have persisted. I would go as far as to say that I believe this question has an answer.
