To make a copy of the table recipes which is in a different database called production into a new table called recipes_new in the currently selected database, use these two commands:
[code:1:7ab2abe5fb]CREATE TABLE recipes_new LIKE production.recipes;
INSERT recipes_new SELECT * FROM production.recipes;[/code:1:7ab2abe5fb]
This stuff actually works !
Now for a [b:7ab2abe5fb]partial table[/b:7ab2abe5fb]: ( oldtable contains 10 colums/fields, newtable only 4 including primary key, which we solve by NULL-ing the primary incremental key )
[code:1:7ab2abe5fb]INSERT `newtable` select NULL, `ip`,`ip_forwarded`,`time` FROM `oldtable`[/code:1:7ab2abe5fb]
