Copy values from one table to another table using LINQ to SQL?


I have two database tables that have different names but identical structure (columns).

What is the easiest way to copy the values from one table to the other table using LINQ to SQL?

As far as I research, we could use "foreach"  to insert the data from one table to another table.

The code is shown below.

        //there exist two table list and listSecond
        DataClassesDataContext dataClass = new DataClassesDataContext(); //create the instance of the DataContext

        var str = from a in dataClass.lists select a;
        foreach (var val in str) // iterator the data from the list and insert them into the listSecond
            listSecond ls = new listSecond();
            ls.ID = val.ID;
            ls.url = val.url;



Please feel free to let me know if I’ve misunderstood anything.

This is a bit odd, but I have a drop down list that I want to use to display a list of values. These values are a list of products.  I want to filter this list of products by the product category.  HOWEVER, productCategory is NOT part of the products table.  There is a seperate many to many table that handles that. (Some products could be in multiple categories like how a video game at a store could be considered to be part of "Video Games", "Educational Games", "Games for the Xbox360" or whatever might make ense).  So what I have is: A li...
