I have two databases (test & dev) on the same machine (server1) and tried running the below in Oracle SQL Developer, but get errors.

How can i easily copy the test database accounting_structure_tab table into dev ?

truncate DEV.ACCOUNTING_STRUCTURE_TAB
INSERT INTO DEV.ACCOUNTING_STRUCTURE_TAB
SELECT *
from TEST.ACCOUNTING_STRUCTURE_TAB

create a database link in DEV pointing to TEST


then....  (you need "truncate table"  not "truncate")

truncate table ACCOUNTING_STRUCTURE_TAB;



INSERT INTO ACCOUNTING_STRUCTURE_TAB
SELECT *
from ACCOUNTING_STRUCTURE_TAB@your_test_db_link;

I assume the table structure is the same in both dev and test?

Do you have a DBLInk? if you do not create one.

INSERT INTO DEV.ACCOUNTING_STRUCTURE_TAB
SELECT *
from TEST.ACCOUNTING_STRUCTURE_TAB@dblink

if you want to do this from within a pl/sql procedure or anonymous block,  you must wrap the truncate inside an execute immediate  because trucate is ddl which isn't part of pl/sql syntax


begin

execute immediate 'truncate table ACCOUNTING_STRUCTURE_TAB';

INSERT INTO ACCOUNTING_STRUCTURE_TAB
SELECT *
from ACCOUNTING_STRUCTURE_TAB@your_test_db_link;

end;

There is also a sql COPY command.

The docs have the syntax.
