CREATE TABLE `a_messages3` (

Try
INSERT INTO a_messages3 (profile_id,sender,message_id,this_user) 
  SELECT profile_id,sender,message_id,this_user FROM a_messages2

Open in new window


If you do not specify the fields, MySQL will expect 5 fields and the second select only provides 4.

HTH,

INSERT INTO a_messages3 (profile_id,sender,message_id,this_user)
  SELECT profile_id,sender,message_id,this_user FROM a_messages2
