    go to your database 2, import the table from database 1, you don't have to copy anything let the database engine do it for you.

    You are sending mixed signals. You said you wanted to copy an entire table from one database to another, which I told you how to do, you do not have to name the table the same thing, just import it with a new name.

    Your second message you are talking about a front end and back end. By definition a back end is a database that just has tables and no other structure. A front end contains only linked tables along with forms, reports, queries etc. but you are talking about transferring a single field which I don't understand. If it's truly a front end/back end there should be no need to copy anything at all, let alone a single field.
