Janice writes "not certian how to script the following:
trying to insert records into TABLE_A, which has three values. The tricky part is one value is the result of a select statement on TABLE_B. For example

Insert TABLE_A (thing, personorgroup, accessrights)
Values ('unknown', '998', '255')

the unknown is the results from:
(select * from TABLE_B where author = '12067'
and default_rights = '1')
This totals approx 400 records so need to insert a record into TABLE_A for each of the 400 using the values above.
Can anyone help?
Using SQL Server 2000, OS is WIN2K"

This should do it:

Insert Into TABLE_A
(thing, personorgroup, accessrights)
<name of field from TABLE_B>, '998', '255'
where author = '12067'
and default_rights = '1'

Just replace <name of field from TABLE_B> with the name of the
field in table_B which holds the value of thing
