Hi,
Can anyone provide an SQL query to get the distinct `title` from the`locations` table where locations.id = staff_locations.location_id and insert into `locations_2` table?

I hope that makes sense

Thanks in advance.

 CREATE TABLE IF NOT EXISTS `staff_locations` (
  `id` int(10) unsigned NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT,
  `staff_id` int(10) unsigned NOT NULL,
  `location_id` int(10) unsigned NOT NULL,
  PRIMARY KEY (`id`),
  UNIQUE KEY `unique_ids_idx` (`staff_id`,`location_id`),
  KEY `location_id` (`location_id`)
) ENGINE=InnoDB  DEFAULT CHARSET=utf8 AUTO_INCREMENT=6 ;



INSERT INTO `staff_locations` (`id`, `staff_id`, `location_id`) VALUES
(1, 1, 200),
(2, 1, 202),
(3, 1, 211),
(4, 2, 211),
(5, 1, 224),
(6, 2, 229);



CREATE TABLE IF NOT EXISTS `locations` (
  `id` int(10) unsigned NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT,
  `title` varchar(255) DEFAULT '',
  `position` int(11) NOT NULL DEFAULT '9999',
  PRIMARY KEY (`id`)
) ENGINE=InnoDB  DEFAULT CHARSET=utf8 AUTO_INCREMENT=231 ;



INSERT INTO `locations` (`id`, `title`, `position`) VALUES
(200, '2209', 9999),
(201, '2210', 9999),
(202, '2211', 9999),
(203, '2212', 9999),

(228, '2257', 9999),
(229, '2258', 9999),
(230, '2259', 9999);



CREATE TABLE IF NOT EXISTS `locations_2` (
  `id` int(10) unsigned NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT,
  `title` varchar(255) DEFAULT '',
  `position` int(11) NOT NULL DEFAULT '9999',
  PRIMARY KEY (`id`)

I understand you need this
insert into locations_2` (`id`, `title`, `position`)
select l.id, l.title, l.position
from locations l
where exists(select null from staff_locations sl
                where sl.location_id = l.id 
  )
