You can do exactly the same thing in DBI - just submit the entire request:

$sth = $dbh->prepare("insert table (....) select ....from ... where ...");

Nothing magic about it at all!

Subject:    Syntax example of an Inset statement where it is selecting
       values from another table


I am wondering if anyone has an example of an Inset statement where it is
selecting values from another table.

So for example in sql or a stored proc it would look like this

        Insert into table a (column1,
        select(        column1,
        from table b

But am not sure of the syntax when using DBI
I know when I want to insert a row I can do this, but am not sure of the
syntax when I want to grab a bunch of rows from one table and insert them
into another.

$sth=$dbh->prepare(qq{INSERT INTO table b(column1, column2, column3,
column4) VALUES (?, ?, ?, ?)});

I guess one solution is to loop thru the rows that I get returned via a
select statement but that seems like a waste of processing time

Any help would be appreciated
