oracle: insert row from main table TO client table

Good afternoon, I have a Main table with 225 columns.
 I have another table with 6 columns Client has 17 records.
 I need complete information in the Customer table, this information is in the Main table (also with 6 columns).
 My question is:
 as I can insert into the Customer table records missing?

merge into customer c
using main m
on (c.id = m.id)  ==> use whatever is needed to determine a match
when not matched then
insert (c.col1, c.col2, c.col3, c.col4, c.col5, c.col6)
values(m.col1, m.col2, m.col3, m.col4, m.col5, m.col6);

Are you looking for a statement like this:

INSERT INTO CUSTOMER
SELECT COL1, COL2, COL3, COL4, COL5, COL6
FROM MAIN
WHERE...

That should do what you want, you just need to supply all the proper column names and where clause.

my customer table already has data, I only need to insert the missing

What exactly is missing, and in which table?

The "what is missing" part would be the where clause.  How do you define "missing"?


INSERT INTO CUSTOMER C1
SELECT COL1, COL2, COL3, COL4, COL5, COL6
FROM MAIN M
WHERE NOT EXISTS (SELECT NULL FROM CUSTOMER C2 WHERE C1.COL1=C2.COL1 AND
C1.COL2=C2.COL2 AND C1.COL3=C2.COL3 AND C1.COL4 = C2.COL4 AND
C1.COL5 = C2.COL5 AND C1.COL6=C2.COL6);

However, I have no idea how you define "missing".

I'm not sure about 'missing' either but as an alternative to the 'not exits':

insert into customer(col1, col2, col3)
select col1,col2,col3 from main
minus
select col1,col2,col3 from customer;

missing = records that are not in my customer table

Mark GeerlingsDatabase AdministratorCommented:
OK, so which table do they exist in, and which column values do you compare to determine they are missing?

That's precisely what the merge statement I showed is doing - inserting records from the main table where they don't already exist in the customer table.

I insert from main table to customer
 customer has less than 20rows. in the main  table there are 325 customers

I believe any of the latest posts will do what you want.  What part of them are you not understanding?

Mark GeerlingsDatabase AdministratorCommented:
Then the examples from johnsone and slightwv should be very close to what you need.  We just don't know exactly which column(s) of those tables have to be compared to know if the record should be added, or not.
