INSERT SELECT with multiple databases - MySQL

Hello, I want to do an insert select, where data from one table in one database is copied into another table in another database. The databases are on the same server. The tables have the same structure. I have tried: INSERT INTO db1.table SELECT * FROM db2.table but I keep getting this error: Incorrect table name Is it possible to do an INSERT SELECT with different databases on the same server?...

    Default INSERT SELECT with multiple databases

    Hello,

    I want to do an insert select, where data from one table in one
    database is copied into another table in another database. The
    databases are on the same server. The tables have the same structure.

    I have tried: INSERT INTO db1.table SELECT * FROM db2.table
    but I keep getting this error: Incorrect table name

    Is it possible to do an INSERT SELECT with different databases on the
    same server?

    I tried the same, but without "db1.", so from the database "db1":

    use db1;
    INSERT INTO table SELECT * FROM db2.table;

    No problems whatsoever.

    Best regards.
