Hello.

If tableA and tableB have the same columns but in differrent order

Is there a way to get

INSERT INTO tableA  SELECT * FROM tableB  LIMIT 1;

to work, that is, get the value in column  X to be placed in the
corresponding column in tableA  without listing all the columns?


Create a view on the source table with columns listed in the necessary 
order and use the view?

Regards,
Jayadevan
