What do you mean by "overwrite"? Do you want to replace the entire
table? Or do you want to keep existing records, add new records,
and update (overwrite) records that match some condition?
If you want to replace the entire table, then you can use TRUNCATE
or DELETE to empty it, then INSERT ... SELECT to insert the results
of a query. Another possibility would be to DROP the table and use
CREATE TABLE AS or SELECT INTO, but then you'd have to recreate any
indexes, constraints, triggers, etc.
