"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Usually I write script to select from table and insert into another table? Just a question , are you going to use 2 database in different table?
Steve BinkCommented:
Assuming your source table has id (primary key), field1, and field2, and your destination table has the same:
INSERT INTO destination_table (field1,field2) 
  SELECT field1,field2 FROM source_table WHERE id=1

Using a demo table or two, these worked.
INSERT INTO `folder2`(`folderID`, `ParentID`, `Folder`, `FullFolderPath`) SELECT * FROM `folder` LIMIT 3

INSERT INTO `folder2` ( `folderID` , `ParentID` , `Folder` , `FullFolderPath` ) SELECT * FROM `folder` WHERE `folderID` > 'ec83ba08-0161-11e1-afd1-003048c66aaa' LIMIT 3
