I need to create a stored procedure in the following format:
INSERT INTO dbo.Table(
       Row1,
      Row2,
      Row3,
etc


Select Row1,
      Row2,
      Row3,
etc

FROM SomeTable

--- But ---

Row1 for example might require a lookup from another database table.
How would I do the lookup so that the returned value could be inserted
into the table?

It would be something like this:

INSERT INTO dbo.Table(
       Row1,
      Row2,
      Row3,
etc


Select (Select Lookup From OtherTable Where LookupColumn = Row1),
      Row2,
      Row3,
etc

FROM SomeTable

Open in new window


I hope this helps.

OR should I do all the lookups before I do the select?

Combining the lookups in the same select will give you a better performance, as the database will optimize the query for you.
