I want to move TableA data to TableB after one week finish.

Hi frnds,

am working on c#, SqlServer 2005.

my requirement is :

I have two tables in sqlserver database.

after every one week finish TableA data must be inserted into TableB...only one week data must be inserted in TableB.

This process should be continued.

Please can you help me, how to do this.

Thanks in advance.

Assuming that both the table structures are identical and there is a column containing details of when a record was last modified, then you can use SQL similar to one shown below to INSERT Selective Data into Table B from Table A.

INSERT INTO table_b (tb_col1, tb_col2, tb_col3, ...)
SELECT ta.col1, ta.col2, ta.col3, ...FROM table_a ta
WHERE ta.last_modified BETWEEN date_start AND date_end

Later on you can fire the DELETE SQL to delete this data from table_a.
FROM table_a taWHERE ta.last_modified BETWEEN date_start AND date_end

Don't forget to wrap both these queries in a transaction block and check the count of inserted vs deleted rows to make sure that everything is done correctly. This entire thing can be wrapped in a procedure which then can be scheduled to run on every weekend. (
