select values into an "insert"

I want to take these values and insert them into another table:

sel into

The menuids are not guaranteed to be 531 and 532, so I need to use the select to find-out what they are by finding the values of other columns on the same row.

But I don't want to just insert the menuids, I want to insert other values as well that do not come from a table but will be hard-coded.

Not sure how to do this.


the resulting action would be essentially doing this:

insert into menuperm (menuid, clientid, clientsid, roleid, setting)
values (<<first menu id from the select>>, 0, 0, 3, 1)

insert into menuperm (menuid, clientid, clientsid, roleid, setting)
values (<<first menu id from the select>>, 0, 0, 4, 1)

insert into menuperm (menuid, clientid, clientsid, roleid, setting)
values (<<second menu id from the select>>, 0, 0, 3, 1)

insert into menuperm (menuid, clientid, clientsid, roleid, setting)
values (<<second menu id from the select>>, 0, 0, 4, 1)


So there will be 2 sets of inserts for each menu id returned from the select I described.

You need the insert-select fomat for you query, and 'hard-code' you values is the subselect. The quickest way using 2 queies for each coding

e.g.

insert into menuperm (menuid, clientid, clientsid, roleid, setting)
select menuid, 0, 0, 3, 1
from Menu 
where MenuCode in ('AgentFormAdd','AgentFormEdit')

insert into menuperm (menuid, clientid, clientsid, roleid, setting)
select menuid, 0, 0, 4, 1
from Menu 
where MenuCode in ('AgentFormAdd','AgentFormEdit')

Open in new window

so you want to insert two rows for each, say 531 will have a 3 and a 4? you can do something like

insert menuperm
select menuid, 0, 0, 3, 1  from Menu
where MenuCode in ('...... complete....
union all
select menuid, 0, 0, 4, 1  from Menu
where MenuCode in ('...... complete....

--INSERT INTO dbo.menuperm (menuid, clientid, clientsid, roleid, setting) --uncomment after testing
SELECT
    m.menuid, 0 AS clientid, 0 AS clientsid, valuelist.roleid, 1 AS setting
FROM dbo.Menu m
CROSS JOIN (
    SELECT 3 AS roleid UNION ALL
    SELECT 4
) AS valuelist
WHERE
    m.MenuCode IN ('AgentFormAdd', 'AgentFormEdit')
ORDER BY --optional
    m.menuid, valuelist.roleid

Just to add ralmada's version would be more atomic than using 2 seperate inserts so would be a more preferable way of acheiving what you want.

ScottPletchers version should be faster still as only 1 select from the Menu table is specified (though this would only be noticable if the table is very large)
