SQL Server: How to load data from one table into the other?

Hi,

I am loading data with 'select * into ...' statement, wondering if there is better, faster way to accomplish the task, ex SSIS package, bulk load etc.

Thanks.

Hi,

If creating table while inserting then

Select * into is best.

If adding to existing table with data then Drop index load data then recreate index.

You can also use SSIS with Fast Load option
