Bob, I don't quite understand your question. If you are wondering why the first one gives you an error? It is because "(test_this_name)" is not a column in your table you are inserting to. So of course it will give you an invalid column error. Mark
What I was trying to do is add a new row a data using the insert and select statement. I have three tables that have like primary keys and I joined them together hoping to be able to add data with one insert statement. After reading some more this weekend, I dont think I can do it this way, unless you know of some trick. Next Im going to make a view of the three table and try to insert into the view. Any other suggestions? I'm fairly new so be nice:-) Thanks, Bob
Well, I am still confused at what you are doing. If you have one table you are inserting into, then what you want to do is possible. I have many insert statements that are records inserted from a Select statement. Just like thus
My joins are in a where clause, but they can use the ANSI join standards codes. Anything you want. Also in my example the resultset structure matches the structure of the insertTable. Hope that helps. Mark
