Hi,

I have a set of tables in my source database.
The naming convention for the tables are:

XXXEmployee2010
XXXSalary2010

I need to migrate data from XXXEmployee in source database to Employee table in my destination database.
eg:

Declare @Src_Table nvarchar(25)
, @Des_Table nvarchar(25)

Set @Src_Table = 'XXXSalary'
set @Des_Table = Substring('XXXSalary',3,6)

Insert into DES_DB_dbo.@des_Table
Select * From  Src_DB.dbo.@src_Table

Q1.   what is the correct way of writing above inset into syntax using parameters @des_Table and @src_Table?

Q2.  How can I write a script in sql that goes through the tables in source database and one by one transfer them to destination database using query above?

Many thanks in advance

1. you will have to write dynamic sql to execute the insert statment with parameters

2. check out the below code
declare @strSql nvarchar(1000)
declare cur cursor for 
select  'Insert into DES_DB_dbo..' + Substring(TABLE_NAME,3,6) + 
		' select * from Src_DB..' + TABLE_NAME StrSql  
from test.INFORMATION_SCHEMA.TABLES 

open cur
fetch next from cur into @strSql
while @@FETCH_STATUS = 0
begin 
	print @strSql
	fetch next from cur  into @strSql
end
close cur
deallocate cur

Open in new window
