SQL action statement question

I am trying to bring data from one table into another, and the INSERT INTO with a nested SELECT statement works fine, with one exception.  Some of the fields from the source table, although their names don't match, are needed to be brought across into the correct field.  For example, both tables might have FROM and TO fields, so they map across easily, but one table has FROM_____V and TO_______V which map to FROM_Special and TO_Special respectively.  Is there any way that I can map the fields using the INSERT INTO with SELECT statement I described above?  If there isn't a way using that statement, how about in another way?  Any help would be greatly appreciated. =)

You can first execute the select statement on the source, then save the fields in memory variable so that you can then issue an insert to the target, of course, this way you need a loop.

Any way to do it without the loop?

A loop is quit simple and I don't think that it will be inefficient.

Well, on a 28MB file, a loop is unefficient enough to make a difference.  Looks like I don't have much of a choice, tho :)  Thanks

Actually, I just figured it out... in the SELECT statement I need to use table.field AS [new field name] =)
