Not quite sure what you're asking

Select * into Table_A from Table_B

If the target table already exists then you would need to use INSERT INTO

I always prefer to list the column names in my INSERT INTO and SELECT statements, however you don't have to.

Example:

CREATE TABLE SSC_Target (Column1 INT, Column2 INT, Column3 INT)

CREATE TABLE SSC_Source (Column1 INT, Column2 INT, Column3 INT)

INSERT INTO SSC_Source VALUES (1, 2, 3), (4, 5, 6)

INSERT INTO SSC_Target
SELECT * FROM SSC_Source

SELECT * FROM SSC_Target
SELECT * FROM SSC_Source

DROP TABLE SSC_Target
DROP TABLE SSC_Source

Society has varying and conflicting interests; what is called objectivity is the disguise of one of these interests - that of neutrality. But neutrality is a fiction in an unneutral world. There are victims, there are executioners, and there are bystanders... and the 'objectivity' of the bystander calls for inaction while other heads fall.

I had this code

select *
INTO Hosea_tempTable
from Hosea_tblDATA_Product_Reports


I see my error was select, I had to insert.

I have this code

select *
INTO Hosea_tempTable
from Hosea_tblDATA_Product_Reports


and I get this error;
There is already an object named 'Hosea_tempTable' in the database


Yes, that's because SELECT INTO attempts to create a table that already exists in your database. You want to be using INSERT INTO instead.
