Insert into select

 1:34 pm on Dec 7, 2010 (gmt 0)

I have two databases, A and B.

A is a read-only table.

I'm wondering if it's possible to run an "insert into select" query on Table B.

insert into B:data (B:data.test)
select A:data.test from A:data
where A:data.test = '0';

Will A be able to do this? I'd just check myself but I'm running these queries through VMS using Attunity and the error messages are archaic.

It depends on what database you're using. For example, if you're using MS SQL, the following should work (assuming you have the proper permissions for both databases):
INSERT INTO b.dbo.data (test)
SELECT a.dbo.data.test
WHERE test=0

What database engine are you using? e.g. MySQL?

It's a Historian database with OLE DB.
