I need to create a new table (contacts2) with all the data from table 2 and  the `account_id` from table 1.

account_id needs to be added into the correct record where table1 contact_id= table2.id,
I have created the following query but I am getting syntax error and can't find my error.

 INSERT INTO contacts2 (`id`, `deleted`, `date_entered`, `date_modified`, `modified_user_id`, `assigned_user_id`, `created_by`, `salutation`, `first_name`, `last_name`, `lead_source`, `title`, `department`, `reports_to_id`, `birthdate`, `do_not_call`, `phone_home`, `phone_mobile`, `phone_work`, `phone_other`, `phone_fax`, `email1`, `email2`, `assistant`, `assistant_phone`, `email_opt_out`, `primary_address_street`, `primary_address_city`, `primary_address_state`, `primary_address_postalcode`, `primary_address_country`, `alt_address_street`, `alt_address_city`, `alt_address_state`, `alt_address_postalcode`, `alt_address_country`, `description`, `portal_name`, `portal_active`, `portal_app`, `invalid_email`, `campaign_id`, `account_id`) 
SELECT `contact`.`id` as `id`, `contact`.`deleted` as `deleted`, `contact`.`date_entered` as `date_entered`, `contact`.`date_modified` as `date_modified`, `contact`.`modified_user_id` as `modified_user_id`, `contact`.`assigned_user_id` as `assigned_user_id`, `contact`.`created_by` as `created_by`, `contact`.`salutation` as `salutation`, `contact`.`first_name` as `first_name`, `contact`.`last_name` as `last_name`, `contact`.`lead_source` as `lead_source`, `contact`.`title` as `title`, `contact`.`department` as `department`, `contact`.`reports_to_id` as `reports_to_id`, `contact`.`birthdate` as `birthdate`, `contact`.`do_not_call` as `do_not_call`, `contact`.`phone_home` as `phone_home`, `contact`.`phone_mobile` as `phone_mobile`, `contact`.`phone_work` as `phone_work`, `contact`.`phone_other` as `phone_other`, `contact`.`phone_fax` as `phone_fax`, `contact`.`email1` as `email1`, `contact`.`email2` as `email2`, `contact`.`assistant` as `assistant`, `contact`.`assistant_phone` as `assistant_phone`, `contact`.`email_opt_out` as `email_opt_out`, `contact`.`primary_address_street` as `primary_address_street`, `contact`.`primary_address_city` as `primary_address_city`, `contact`.`primary_address_state` as `primary_address_state`, `contact`.`primary_address_postalcode`as `primary_address_postalcode`, `contact`.`primary_address_country`as `primary_address_country`, `contact`.`alt_address_street` as `alt_address_street`, `contact`.`alt_address_city` as `alt_address_city`, `contact`.`alt_address_state` as `alt_address_state`, `contact`.`alt_address_postalcode` as `alt_address_postalcode`, `contact`.`alt_address_country` as `alt_address_country`, `contact`.`description` as `description`, `contact`.`portal_name` as `portal_name`, `contact`.`portal_active` as `portal_active`, `contact`.`portal_app` as `portal_app`, `contact`.`invalid_email` as `invalid_email`, `contact`.`campaign_id` as `campaign_id`, `accounts_contacts`.`account_id` 
WHERE `accounts_contacts`.`contact_id`=`contacts`.`id`
 

Open in new window



I need a fresh pair of eyes to help me debug this, at this point all I see is %&^&^%&^%&^&%&^%.

I think you missed
From `contacts`, `accounts_contacts`

From the select query

Try this

  INSERT INTO contacts2 (`id`, `deleted`, `date_entered`, `date_modified`, `modified_user_id`, `assigned_user_id`, `created_by`, `salutation`, `first_name`, `last_name`, `lead_source`, `title`, `department`, `reports_to_id`, `birthdate`, `do_not_call`, `phone_home`, `phone_mobile`, `phone_work`, `phone_other`, `phone_fax`, `email1`, `email2`, `assistant`, `assistant_phone`, `email_opt_out`, `primary_address_street`, `primary_address_city`, `primary_address_state`, `primary_address_postalcode`, `primary_address_country`, `alt_address_street`, `alt_address_city`, `alt_address_state`, `alt_address_postalcode`, `alt_address_country`, `description`, `portal_name`, `portal_active`, `portal_app`, `invalid_email`, `campaign_id`, `account_id`)
SELECT `contact`.`id` as `id`, `contact`.`deleted` as `deleted`, `contact`.`date_entered` as `date_entered`, `contact`.`date_modified` as `date_modified`, `contact`.`modified_user_id` as `modified_user_id`, `contact`.`assigned_user_id` as `assigned_user_id`, `contact`.`created_by` as `created_by`, `contact`.`salutation` as `salutation`, `contact`.`first_name` as `first_name`, `contact`.`last_name` as `last_name`, `contact`.`lead_source` as `lead_source`, `contact`.`title` as `title`, `contact`.`department` as `department`, `contact`.`reports_to_id` as `reports_to_id`, `contact`.`birthdate` as `birthdate`, `contact`.`do_not_call` as `do_not_call`, `contact`.`phone_home` as `phone_home`, `contact`.`phone_mobile` as `phone_mobile`, `contact`.`phone_work` as `phone_work`, `contact`.`phone_other` as `phone_other`, `contact`.`phone_fax` as `phone_fax`, `contact`.`email1` as `email1`, `contact`.`email2` as `email2`, `contact`.`assistant` as `assistant`, `contact`.`assistant_phone` as `assistant_phone`, `contact`.`email_opt_out` as `email_opt_out`, `contact`.`primary_address_street` as `primary_address_street`, `contact`.`primary_address_city` as `primary_address_city`, `contact`.`primary_address_state` as `primary_address_state`, `contact`.`primary_address_postalcode`as `primary_address_postalcode`, `contact`.`primary_address_country`as `primary_address_country`, `contact`.`alt_address_street` as `alt_address_street`, `contact`.`alt_address_city` as `alt_address_city`, `contact`.`alt_address_state` as `alt_address_state`, `contact`.`alt_address_postalcode` as `alt_address_postalcode`, `contact`.`alt_address_country` as `alt_address_country`, `contact`.`description` as `description`, `contact`.`portal_name` as `portal_name`, `contact`.`portal_active` as `portal_active`, `contact`.`portal_app` as `portal_app`, `contact`.`invalid_email` as `invalid_email`, `contact`.`campaign_id` as `campaign_id`, `accounts_contacts`.`account_id`

Hello and thank you for your fast response,

Cluskitt: I follow you reply and I get,
#1327 - Undeclared variable: contacts2

I have read on a forum:
Apparantly doing the SELECT INTO was not supported in MYSQL, to do what I want to do and that it needs to be done as:
INSERT INTO [tablename]
SELECT [fields],
but this data just comes from one forum so I don't know if it is true or not.

Pratima mcs: I have made the changes you suggested and I get,
#1054 - Unknown column 'contact.id' in 'field list'

Hello qasim_md:

Thank you, I get an error on the query:
#1054 - Unknown column 'contacts.id' in 'where clause'

All the data is helpful as I can see how other programers  structure the query.

Great,

Thank you, it works great.

Some times it makes me wonder why the MYSQL data management softwares do not come with this type of capabilities already in as part of the pakage.

Thank you again.
