Quickly copy records between tables with same structure

The SQL language offers a simple and effective way to quickly move all records from a table to another table with same field structure, that is same fields’ name, type and position:

INSERT Customers SELECT * FROM New_Customers– you can optionally complete the move by– deleting all records in the source tableDELETE New_Customers

If the fields have different names, or if the target tables doesn’t include all the fields in the source table, you must provide a field list:

INSERT Customers (Name, Address, City, Nation) VALUES     SELECT Name, Address, City, Country FROM New_Customers

If fields also have a different type in the two tables, you must convert data on the fly using the CONVERT() function.
