I need to insert some table (padronf) with all it's records and fields into another table (padron) which has the same records (I mean the same names) plus one which is autonumber. So to be short, I need the SQL statement to insert all the records in padronf into padron and generate the correct autonumbers for IdAfi.
I know this is done with the INSERT keyword but don't know the correct sintax.

So, do you know how to do this? I suppose you do, so please help me.

thanks.

Cesario: I get the error 'Invalid use of the given token: MERGE'.

kretch..: there are 20 fields, I won't write all there names twice. And, I must say I tried to do so, but not  autonumber is 'created'.

thanks.

sorry, just corrected that. However, my question now is the following: is there any way to avoid duplicate records. Supose I run the sql command with the insert statement. Now I do this again. So, those records will be twice in padron.db.

can I avoid this?

thanks.

Did you try

Insert into padron (FieldList_AutoincField_Excluded) Select DISTINCT FieldList_AutoincField_Excluded from padronf

?
