I copied data from table 'Provider' with agencyID = 1 and INSERTED INTO the same table with an agencyID = 2.  This table has an ID.  I need this ID in my next INSERT INTO statement.  There are many rows for agencyID = 2 in the Provider table.  There will be a many to many relationship between the two tables.

The next table I will be using is the 'ReportingUnits' table.  I will do the same thing.  Coping the data WHERE agencyID =1 into the same table with agencyID = 2.  [rUnitProviderId] field is the primary key of the provider table.  How can I populate this field with a SELECT statement inside my INSERT statement?


Here is my query:

INSERT INTO ReportingUnits ([ProviderNumber],[ReportingUnit],[UnitName],[SiteIdentifier],[SiteName]
      ,[AgencyID],[create_date], [rUnitProviderId])
  
  SELECT [ProviderNumber],[ReportingUnit],[UnitName],[SiteIdentifier],[SiteName]
      ,'2' ,getDate(),  

(SELECT ProviderID FROM Provider WHERE AgencyID = 2 AND ProviderNumber = THIS IS WHERE I NEED HELP!!!

  FROM [ReportingUnits]
  WHERE Agencyid = 1

Hi,

I think this will help you to get what you wanted.

INSERT INTO ReportingUnits ([ProviderNumber],[ReportingUnit],[UnitName],[SiteIdentifier],[SiteName]
      ,[AgencyID],[create_date], [rUnitProviderId])
  
  SELECT [ProviderNumber],[ReportingUnit],[UnitName],[SiteIdentifier],[SiteName]
      ,'2' ,getDate(), (SELECT ProviderID FROM Provider b WHERE AgencyID = 2 AND b.ProviderNumber = a.[ProviderNumber]) rpid

  FROM [ReportingUnits] a
  WHERE Agencyid = 1
