How to auto-generate the columns needed for insert command Follow
Say that I have a simple insert command:
INSERT INTO schema.table1
SELECT (a bunch of columns)

Hi Leon, thanks for the help, but I'm seeking to generate just the names of the columns in table1, not of table2. This gives me the full list of table2 but I only need the ones in table1.
Thanks Leon, it's not exactly what I want, but works to some extend. I only need to copy the line and paste it after SELECT. Thanks!
