I have two databases and would like to copy one table into another in the other database.

I can read all the information into a recordset.

I am looking for an easy way to put the old data into the new table without having to loop and specify the insert statement.

I am trying to copy table results into results_old in the new db.

Use a make table query


SELECT INTO results_old FROM results

Hi, you can link from one database to another. The way to to this depends on the type of database. I could give you examples for SQL Server and Access databases. Once the link is made, you could use cquinn's comment to transfer the data.

However, if this is something you'd only like to do once, you might be better off using the SQL Server Data Transformation Services (DTS). This is an easy tool that enables you to copy data and tables from one datasource to another data source. DTS doesn't care wether it's an Access, MySQL, SQL Server, Excel, Oracle or ASCII data source. If it's two MS Access tables, you could just open both databases in different instances of MS Access, and simply copy/paste the table.

Good luck.

From within the target database run this query

SELECT INTO results_old FROM results IN "C:\OldDatabase.mdb"

I would like to use visual basic.

I currently have a program that gets data from one database loops throught the recodset and I use insert statements to put it in the other database.  I don't want to have to specify the column names and do an insert statement.  Can someone help me accomplish this?

If your solution does not include vb, please do not respond, it is not what I am looking for.

Thanks

cquinn already answered your question. VB code:
conn.Execute SELECT INTO results_old FROM results IN "C:\OldDatabase.mdb", , adExecuteNoRecords

where conn is your connection to new database

Ark and cquinn are right. By using the IN-statement, you don't even need to specify a link first. I think that's the easiest approach.


Good luck
