Yes you can have it...

1)If both the table structures are same - column positions and data type then do :

insert into table2
select a.* from
table1 a, table3 b
where a.id = b.id

This will insert all rows from table1 (matching with id of table 2) into table3

2)If you want selected combination of data from both tables then do:

insert into table2(col1,col2,col3)
select a.col1, b.col2, a.col3 from
table1 a, table3 b
where a.id = b.id

No.  Well, almost.  Use joins for greater efficiency.

  insert into table2(col1,col2,col3)
  select a.col1, b.col2, a.col3
  from table1 as a inner join table3 as b on a.id = b.id

insert into table2 (field1, field2) values
  (select fielda, fieldb from table1, table3 where table1.id = table3.id)

is ok, the exact syntax can depend upon the database you are using, just make sure the
fields match in number, type, etc

You can use this if tables have the same structure:

insert into table2
select a.*
 from table1 a
INNER JOIN table3 b on  a.id = b.id


or use :
select a.*
INTO table2
 from table1 a
INNER JOIN table3 b on  a.id = b.id

IF table2 doesn't exist and you want to copy both data and table design from Table1.
