where does the data come from?
if it comes from a table: see above comment

otherwise, you may do this:

insert into tablename ( column1, column2) select 1, 'A' union all select 2,'B' 

Open in new window


if you have the very recent version of sql server 2008 R2, you could also do:
insert into tablename ( column1, column2) values ( 1, 'A' ), (2,'B' ) 

Open in new window
