    append query.
    choose the source record (via key) and add to the target table.

    the button would execute:
    docmd.openquery "qaAdd1Record"

    I think you want to only add the current record that does not yet exist in school history table, is that correct? If yes you need to create an append query as ranman said, but use left outer joins (arrows pointing from the student individual table towards the school history table) between the student ID and school and in the fields coming from school history (student and school) you put Null as the criteria.

    Cheers,
