I have a large number of Mysql database tables. I need to move some records around from one table to the other but I do not know how to go about this. Please help me with you expertise to move data from one table to the next. What kind of script should I develop and what specific commands can accomplish this task?
How to Develop Script to Move Data between Mysql Tables
To Transfer the data from one tale to another table by following methods:
** The INSERT INTO method
** The BCP/Bulk Insert method
** SELECT INTO method
The INSERT INTO method works with the following methodology
INSERT INTO Table2 ( <Columns>)
WHERE < condition>
DELETE FROM Table1
The above is the simplest method
** The The BCP/Bulk Insert method copies data from one table to another in two steps.
1. Use BCP to extract the data and make it a text file.
2. Using BULK INSERT command transferring the records into the destination file.
** SELECT INTO method is used when previously created table is not there and wants the data to be transferred from one table to the newly created table.
