  • You can drop the primary key, however this would likely cause a lot more problems. Most of the time primary keys are placed for a good reason (i.e. to uniquely identify a specific record). I think it would be a really, really bad idea to drop the primary key.

  • If they are unique, can you either SELECT DISTINCT or GROUP BY to remove the duplicates?  Other options is to place the records in a temp table and only insert the records that do not exist in the other table.  Then you can update the old records with the new records.
