Do the table schemas match each other in the tables you're trying to do the copy?

if schemas match:

insert into p_pn
select * from  i_pn

you'll get an error if they don't match.

if the table doesn't even exist, I usually use the SQL Import Export wizard.

Hi,

If the table doesn't exist and you want a copy, you can use

select * into p_pn from i_pn
