Dear Experts,

I have table TA with columns a, b, c, d, e, f.  I have table TB with columns x, y, z, t. I'll insert columns a, d, e, f into table TB using Insert statement with Select. Is below statement correct without using AS keyword for column mappings?

BR

insert into TB (x,y,z,t) select a,d,e,f from TA;  

Note: AS keyword will not be used.

Looks good to me.  The AS after a column just sets the column alias.  Has nothing to do with an insert with select.
