Hello, I work with a legacy schema, thanks to Rails it's not too difficult out of the ID's and plurals rules. Got two tables (senders and receivers), they are identical in structure like, just fieldnames are differents SENDID number SENDNAME varchar SENDADDR varchar ../snip RECVID number SENDNAME varchar SENDADDR varchar ../snip I try to create a receiver from a sender : s=Sender.find(42) r=Receiver.new r=<Attributes_from_S> r.save! Any magic code ? Thanks for help.

If the attribute(field) names are the same (other than the 'id' field) then you can assign one objects attributes from the other: r.attributes = s.attributes If they are different then you'd need to manage those differences explicitly. -- Lee

Lee, > If the attribute(field) names are the same (other than the 'id' field) > then you can assign one objects attributes from the other: In fact, I just wronk typed my tables. Fields names are different, and I've used an easy but dirty fieldX to fieldY assignment. Thanks for help.
