Truncate source table after copy sql 2005
Posted on 2009-04-08
I see all of the advice on how to copy the tables from one db to another...
Here is my situation:
I need to copy (once daily) data from Server1 DB1 Table to Server 2 DB2 Table... Structure is exact (Primary Key is exact). Both are SQL 2005
THEN Truncate the data in DB1 Table.
So, if this is my SP (below) to copy (is it correct?) then I need to know:
How to set it up to run daily
How to Truncate data in DB1 Table.
SELECT * INTO DB2.dbo.Table FROM DB1.dbo.Table (I'll use field names if that is recommeded - cleaner)
