See the mysql documentation of the "insert into" syntax for how to use a 
trailing "select" statement to get the values to be inserted.  In a single 
statement you can select the data from one table and insert it into 
another.  Example: "insert into table2 (p_key,data) select p_key,data from 
table1 where p_key >100 and data !='garbage'"

(This also works for "replace into" and "create table" statements, BTW.  
Nifty, eh? <g>)
