Hi Dave,

I am following up from the post https://www.interactivetools.com/forum/forum-posts.php?postNum=2232571 on how to copy over records from one table to another.

I tried it but I am getting the error message:

Inserting record #1
_mysql_getMysqlSetValues: Invalid column name 'floor_level:label'!

In the Section Editor, I created a new editor by copying an existing section and then ran the import described in postNum 2232571.

The column 'floor_level' is a pulldown list with the following values:

GF|Ground Floor
1stF|1st Floor
2ndF|2nd Floor

Is there a simple way around this?

Hi Terry, 

There's no built in support for that.  

But to not generate the :label, etc fields you can add this option to getRecords:

'loadPseudoFields' => false, 
'loadCreatedBy'    => false, // also add this to not export createdBy.* fields
'loadUploads'      => false, // and to not output upload data (which won't get copied anyways)

 And here's a way to copy an entire table: 

  • Go to: Admin > General > Backup & Restore
  • Backup your entire database for safety (select: All Database Table)
  • Now, backup the table you want to copy, eg: example1
  • Find the backup file, eg: cmsb/data/backups/hostname-v2.##-20151022-145723-example1.sql.php
  • Rename it from "example1" to "example2"
  • Open the file and replace #TABLE_PREFIX#_example1 to #TABLE_PREFIX#_example2
  • Restore the renamed backup file under: Admin > General

Hope that helps!  Good luck!

Hi Dave,

I like the second option much better and it worked absolutely perfectly!

Thanks very much.
