Hi Experts,

I have two tables A and B

A table has columns A1 A2
B table has              B1 B2

A1 is num from 1 to ~
B1 is num from 1 to ~

Let say I have in table A

1  MICHAEL
2  JOHN
3  JERRY

In table B I have

1 JEAN
2 ROY
3 SAM
4 GERALD

etc

I need to INSERT at the end of table A all rows from table B so that I have this result:

1  MICHAEL
2  JOHN
3  JERRY
4 JEAN
5 ROY
6 SAM
7 GERALD

Thank you.

if the A1 is an auto-incremental identity field then you just need to

insert A(A2) select B2 from B

if it's not an identity field, you can do

insert A(A1, A2) select B1 + A1MAX,  B2
from B
cross join (select max(A1) as A1MAX from A) derived

INSERT TableA (NameColumn)
SELECT NameColumn
FROM TableB b
WHERE NOT EXISTS (SELECT NameColumn FROM TableA a WHERE a.NameColumn = b.NameColumn)
