I have values from a temp table that need to be inserted into an existing table.  However, I will hard code some of the values going in.  How do I mix these hard coded values with the INSERT INTO...SELECT?  Or is a different technique needed?

No problem!  You just can't wildcard the fields.

INSERT INTO intable (infield1, infield2, infield3, ...)
SELECT outfiled1, outfield2, 'hardcode',...
FROM outtable

No problem:

INSERT INTO SomeTable (col1, col2, col3, col4)
SELECT x, y, 'Fred', 123
FROM #my_temp

Open in new window


First two columns from the temp table, last two as constants.
