I have a data table called Games in an MS SQL 2005 database with a column called CaseID. CaseID is a foreign key from another datatable called Cases. I want to select a block of rows from Games where CaseID = 1 (for example), and add them into Games with CaseID = 2 (for example). I am struggling to write the SQL query to do this. I am working in Visual Web Developer 2008 Express Edition. I am building an ASP.NET 3.5 page with code in Visual Basic.

Not sure I understand the full questions here... but as a starting point,

select * from games where caseid = 1

will get that initial 'block'

not sure what you mean by "add them into Games" but think you then want to insert as caseid = 2 ?

insert games (caseid, col1,col2,col3,etc)
select 2, col1,col2,col3
from games where caseid = 1

If you can explain a bit more, step by step, then might be able to get closer to what you are really after...
