Perhaps a bit of SQL:

Select MyTableDbf.* INTO MyNewTable
FROM MyTableDbf;

Best Regards.

I don't wish to make a sql copy of my dbf table.
I just wish to copy one field into another MySqol field and all others left fields from dbf into a single MySql field.

Dbf          MySql
Field1       Field1
Field2+' '+
Field3+' '+
Field4       Field2

I found next link for this conversion:

But I need just couple line to copy a field into MySql first field and others fields into the second MySql field.

with local-sql

for create

create ::mySQL_Alias::tablename
as
select fieldname1||fieldname2, MaybeMoreFields
from ::dbf_alias::tablename

for copy

insert into ::mySQL_Alias::tablename (MayBeFieldList)
select fieldname1||fieldname2, MaybeMoreFields
from ::dbf_alias::tablename

I still don't understand how to do that.

I have next MySql structure table :

CREATE TABLE nuke_encyclopedia_text (
  tid int(10) NOT NULL auto_increment,
  eid int(10) NOT NULL default '0',
  title varchar(255) NOT NULL default '',
  text text NOT NULL,
  counter int(10) NOT NULL default '0',
  PRIMARY KEY  (tid)
) TYPE=MyISAM;

In dbf I have next fields: 'Name', 'Width','Genre'( just for example ).

I wish to store name into title field and 'Width'+'Genre' into text field.


Increased to 300 points for working sample.
