I can't understand what you want
- copy a row from table to table
or

I HAVE A field CALLED UserKeyin1  
Data in the field looks like this
lv=SC-ANNO-NOTE;co=4;lc=0;wt=2;place smartline;

I want to "strip out co=4;lc=0;wt=2 AND prepend it with the text "range:"
in the SAME TABLE the the field UserKeyin1 their is another field called
 ROW EXTRA_INFO
That is where i want the "stripped out" data to go
range:co=4;wt=2;lc=0;
 
does that help explain it better??
