In this blog post, we will build on a previous post, where we cloned a new table with identical structure from an existing one, yet with no data. Leveraging CREATE TABLE SELECT syntax, we can take this a step further by populating the new table with data from the source table.

Note: All data, names or naming found within the database presented in this post, are strictly used for practice, learning, instruction, and testing purposes. It by no means depicts actual data belonging to or being used by any party or organization.
