Hello,
I have a 90,000 db that I want to trim down to a smaller version based on the cashierid...I have 10 cashierids that I want to move all records assocaited to them in to a new table...

e.g.

pseudo code....
SELECT * into smallerTable
FROM t2
WHERE cash_id is "suzy1123" or "barb2523"

obviously I am not sure of the code...help appreciated

try this:

INSERT INTO smallerTable (cash_id, otherfield1, otherfield2)
SELECT cash_id, otherfield1, otherfield2
FROM t2
WHERE cash_id='suzy1123' or 'barb2523'

you need to substitute otherfield1 and otherfield2 with the actual fieldnames from your tables.

If you have the table already created then just Select and Insert, as follows:

INSERT INTO Table2 (Field1, Field2)
SELECT Field1, Field2
FROM Table1 WHERE (Field1 = "suzy1123") or (Field1 = "barb2523") ;

table name is t2...fields are cashierID and itemId

so for this table it would be the following...although I do not have a Table2 created

INSERT INTO Table2 (itemId, casheirId)
SELECT itemId, casheirId
FROM t2 WHERE (cashierId= "suzy1123") or (cashierId= "barb2523") ;

Yes, that's right.

You need to create the other table (Table2 or what you want to call it) with the same two fields: "itemId" and "casheirId".
