I use the following Query "INSERT INTO errrequired (drawing) SELECT drawing FROM border_att". Now i want to fill another field in the "errrequired" table at the same time with a text value. Something like "INSERT INTO errrequired (drawing, attribute) SELECT drawing FROM border_att VALUES 'Drawingnr'". I don't want to loop trough every record to set the value.

Simply add the constant value in the select list:
INSERT INTO errrequired (drawing, attribute)
SELECT drawing , 'Drawingnr' FROM border_att
