Hi Michael,

There several ways to do this.  In Oracle I would generally just create a new table and use the INSERT command in the SQL statement to populate the "temp table" and the same thought process also applies to MYSQL

Give me a call if you like, Cell (860)[masked] or Home (860)  621-5999.

Hello all,

I have a few questions about MySQL queries. If you can help me, please reply.

In a nutshell, I am trying to overwrite my table with a temporary one. However, the PRIMARY KEY to be updated is different between the two tables (It has been modified when the table was copied, for a reason).

Can I do an INSERT INTO or a REPLACE INTO query with a PRIMARY KEY reference to be a specific field I pick, other than the one specified for either of the two tables?

More information at the MySQL forum at:,576325,576325

Thank you for your time. Please help!
