insert into using result of a select

Posted by Pali (Pali), 25 February 2004
Anyone,
Is there a way I can insert rows returned from a select query from a table into itself.

insert into tableA(field1, field2) values (select field1, field2 from tableA)

blatantly doesnt work, but you get what i'm trying to achieve?!

I want to try and avoid writing code to achieve this.

thanks
Pali
