RE: SQL or not?



fixed

I think you have to do the default values in the select statement:

insert into filea (fld1, fld2, fld3, fld4, fld5)
Select fld1, fld2, fld3, fld4, fld5, 0, 0, ' ', CURRENT_DATE, ' ' from fileb where <...>

Or maybe:

insert into filea (fld1, fld2, fld3, fld4, fld5, 0, 0, ' ', CURRENT_DATE, '
')
select * from fileb where <...>

So fields 6 thru 10 get default values - they are not being used for this process anyway.

Can't try as not connected to a box right now....

The fields come pre-defined and are not null-capable.

Will Charles' suggestion:

insert into filea (fld1, fld2, fld3, fld4, fld5) select * from fileb
where <...>

also load FileA fields 6 thru 10 with default values - including the
date field?

Thanks

Hi Keith,

If the date is not null-capable, then I would set the data to 0001-01-01.
