Hi guys i need help i want to move the existing data from table 1 into table 2 how i need to write the query. I tried the select into statement but it did not work at all. So how to do it . Please help i doing this on the vb6 programming

SELECT INTO Table2 (Field1, Field2, Field3) SELECT Table1.Field1, Table1.Field2, Table1.Field3 FROM Table1

As table2 already exists.

Why cant move into table1 to table 2 got error in query analyzer
said syntax near error INTO. Here the code:

SELECT INTO staff_badgeTracking (400001, '12345', 'nana') 
SELECT staff_badgeTrackingNew.400001, staff_badgeTrackingNew.12345, staff_badgeTrackingNew.nana FROM staff_badgeTrackingNew

SELECT INTO staff_badgeTracking (Field1Name) SELECT ...

You need to use the name of the field in between those parens without any single ticks ', then it should work for you.

To move data use update statement. SET the field values of the data u want to move data from to the field value where u want to move the data to.
