Hi Struan, I just tried the following in database desktop (again a
paradox table):

INSERT INTO CalcMethod ( ConfigurationID, Object, Attribute, Method,
Description )
         SELECT 1, Object, Attribute, Method, Description FROM CalcMethod

Unfortunately I get "Type Mismatch in Expression", I assume this is
possibly due to attempting to hardcode the value of ConfigurationID.  If
I run the SELECT portion on its own it works ok, but returns 1 as 1.0
which is the wrong type for ConfigurationID which is a straight integer.

Any idea how I can force the SELECT to return 1 instead of 1.0?
