Add button to add a record in two tables

How can I do in my form so that when the New or Add button is hit to create a new account, it also adds a new record in another table other than the one in the main form?

Without more details, this is as specific as I can get...


DoCmd.RunSQL "INSERT INTO TableA..."
DoCmd.RunSQL "INSERT INTO TableB..."

I get a syntax error.

"Syntax error in INSERT INTO statement"

I took off the three dots and put my table name in the TableA like tblReferences.

    DoCmd.RunSQL "INSERT INTO tblReferences"

Hi Mauricio!
You will need to spell out which fields will need to be inserted, any conditions for the insertion, etc.

Hello, I would like to create a new record in my References table everytime there is a record inserted in the main form.

I have an autonumber in my main form and would like, if posible, to insert that number in the Reference ID field in the References table.
