Re: SQL INSERT Duplicates



fixed

INSERT does not clear - are there records in PRPBHNODUP already? If so, you 
have a couple options - DELETE from PRPBHNODUP first (or CLRPFM) or add a WHERE 
clause to the subquery's SELECT that checks for existing records based on 
whatever columns are pertinent.

Why won't this only insert non-duplicate records? 

insert INTO MICHAEL/PRPBHNODUP SELECT DISTINCT * FROM prpbh 

I get all the records, even though I can clearly see dups...
