Wow, your code is exactly what I need. Cannot get it to run on Access though. This is the content of my first table named ExternalNewsSources which has only one row at the moment. Columns: ExternalNewsSourceID Title Link Description Source With data: 1 SlashDot Headlines Format of the first table is as suggested ExternalNewsSourceID -> autoNumber (internal unique id) Title -> text (name of the site) Link -> text (link to the site, not the source) Description -> text (description of the site) Source -> text (URL for the actual feed) My second table is named ExternalNews and has the following columns: SourceID -text PostDate -text Title -text Link -text Description -text I have a System DSN named TESTSERVER as in the example and I'm running your example code as published. I don't get any errors.... just no data in the tables. Do I have something simple wrong?
