HI,

I have the code below but it creates duplicates.
I want to be able to select the values from the mastercompany and insert it into the same table but with a different company id.

Would be grateful for any advice

Insert into tbl_M08_PageObjectLangContent
(pageObjLangContId, objectId, companyId, sysLanguageId, objectText, objectAlign, createdBy, createdDate, lastModifiedBy, lastModifiedDate)
(SELECT newid(), objectId, 'c6a21d21-a55a-4d50-a4a7-10c5a746460d', sysLanguageId, objectText, objectAlign, 'b81ff3cc-811f-49c8-ab22-9d9fc377d0f5', createdDate, 'b81ff3cc-811f-49c8-ab22-9d9fc377d0f5', lastModifiedDate
FROM tbl_M08_PageObjectLangContent
WHERE companyId = '141a9a54-a3ab-440f-91c1-38eb16310b26')

instead of selecting companyID from the table, this is where you would add the new companyid that you want the record to have.. is the new  company id available in a table, if so select it from there

I assume you mean that you want to add it if it doesn't already exist for the new company.

So you add
AND NOT EXISTS (SELECT * FROM tbl_M08_PageObjectLangContent t2 WHERE tbl_M08_PageObjectLangContent.objectid = t2.objectID
AND t2.companyID =  'c6a21d21-a55a-4d50-a4a7-10c5a746460d')
