Cut data from one table and append it to another table


Recommended Posts

I have 2 tables in my database, hourlyUpdates and archiveUpdates. I would like to create a php script that would cut the data from hourlyUpdates table and append it to archiveUpdates table. The main question is how can I cut the data to be sure that i have removed only exactly what was select statment. For example, hourlyUpdates table has data a,b,c I append the data to archiveUpdates, by the time append has finished hourlyUpdates  has a,b,c,d data. When I remove the data I need to be that I remove only what I have copied.

1. select all the data on that given period

2. insert that in your db

3. check if has been successfully added

4. delete all those added data on your 1st table( if data has been added successfully on step 3)
