I have 2 tables:
Table1   T1Id, T1Text
Table2   T2Id, T2Text
I would like to create a new row in Table2 for each row in Table1 and set Table2.T2Text=Table1.T1Text.
How is best to do that?

is this one time process or something?

You can do something like this.

insert into table2 (t2id,t2text)
Select t1.t1id, t1.t1text from table1 as t1  where t1.t1id not in (select t2.t2id from table2)

Open in new window

with the help of following script, you can update your table2.

update t2
set t2.t2text=t1.t1text
from table1 as t1 join table2 as t2 on t1.t1id=t2.t2id where t2.t2text<>t1.t1text
