How do I write Oracle SQL expression (using TOAD) that inserts rows into a table from a select statement, ie "Insert into table(field 1, field 2, field 3, etc) values(select field1, field2, field3 from tables where conditions)"?

Thank you.

(Basically, when you do an insert based on a select, you simply omit the VALUES key word)

even we can do it like this ( in this case we should ensure that our select list has that many number of columns which are required for the destination table ). Ofcourse, the data types of the select list columns and data types
should match as well which is normal for any insert command.

insert into destinationTable SELECT field1,field2, field3 from sourcetable where ....

Thanks
