SELECT INTO

The SELECT INTO command copies data from one table and inserts it into a new table.

The following SQL statement creates a backup copy of Customers:

SELECT * INTO CustomersBackup2017
FROM Customers;

The following SQL statement uses the IN clause to copy the table into a new table in another database:

SELECT * INTO CustomersBackup2017 IN 'Backup.mdb'
FROM Customers;

The following SQL statement copies only a few columns into a new table:

SELECT CustomerName, ContactName INTO CustomersBackup2017
FROM Customers;

The following SQL statement copies only the German customers into a new table:

FROM Customers
WHERE Country = 'Germany';
