I need to move a row from one table to another table that shares the same structure. Is there a way to do that with wildcards?
I thought something like this might work, but no go.
mysql_query("INSERT INTO trkg_arc (*) SELECT * FROM trkg WHERE id = 3") or die(mysql_error());
Maybe lose the (*) on INSERT:
INSERT INTO trkg_arc SELECT * FROM trkg WHERE id = 3
Thanks itmitică. That worked.

It is better programming practice to both name the columns from the table being inserted and the table being selected. For example, let's imagine you add a new column to one table. Your code would all of a sudden stop working. Likewise if you rebuild your table and reorder the columns then you will get very strange results.
