    COPY syntax

    Beware of the dash "-" at the end of each line it is needed on each line every time. By the way this is the fastest way to copy data from one schema to another.

    set copycommit ###

    copy -
    from /@ -
    to /@ -
    insert ACCTN_TRANS_ST_TYPE_TBL using -
    select * from ACCTN_TRANS_ST_TYPE_TBL;

    Arrow syntax

    Hey I don't know what happened the web site stripped off some of the syntax and took the info I had in greater than and less than signs to mean HTML tags so here it is again.

    COPY -
    from usr/pwd@sid -
    to usr/pwd@sid -
    ...
    ...
    ...

    So is this how the command will look like:
    -
    set copycommit 1;
    set arraysize 1000;
    copy -
    from db1/db1@db1 -
    to db2/db2@db2 -
    insert [target_table] using -
    select * from [source_table];
    -
    Thanx.

    There is a bug with the copy command in 8.1.5. You can't do a copy ... create or copy ... insert.

    Did anyone ever find a fix for that bug? I used to use the copy command a lot, and this bug has pretty well screwed me.

    I tried to find some workaround info on Metalinks, but when they listed the bug, they said they couldn't reproduce the bug and closed the tar.
