Question about Cameras
That depends on the lens mount. Tamron makes lenses for a variety of cameras. If it has a Nikon mount, it fits onto the N2020 just like a Nikon lens. If it has, say, a Canon mount, then it won't fit at all.

Autofocus function on the D40 only supports lenses with the
AF-S feature, which have an autofocus motor built into the lens,
instead of using an autofocus motor drive built into the camera.
The Tamron lens you have, does not have a built in motor and
the autofocus function relies on the motor drive in the camera.
It will not work with the D40 or D60, but it will work with other
Nikon digital SLRs, such as the D80. Need to get an AF-S
type lens or upgrade to different Nikon digital SLR. Unless
you do this, you will have to manually focus the Tamron lens.
All of the Nikon DX (for digital) series lenses are also AF-S
type, so they will work with the D40, which is designed as
an entry level digital SLR, therefore it is intended primarily
for use with DX lenses, which are typically sold in a kit with
the D40. Most common one is Nikkor 18-55mm DX AF-S.
Other Nikon AF-S lenses made for film cameras (FX type)
will also work with the D40, but these tend to be expensive
professional models. DX series lenses tend to be more
affordable. You might consider the 18-200mm DX AF-S
as an alternative to the Tamron, but these are not cheap.

SOURCE: I have a Nikon d3000
The Nikon D3000 does not have a focusing motor built-in, relying on the lens to have a motor. The Tamron AF 55-200mm does not have the necessary motor; it only auto-focuses with Nikon cameras that have the motor in the camera body.
For Nikon lenses, you need lenses designated AF-S. For Tamron, you need lenses designated USD and/or BIM.
That probably wasn't the answer you wanted to see, but there it is.
