And your error is? And the manual says with regard to that error code?
The problem I have is that people can explain things quickly but I can only comprehend slowly.

Reading the fine manual makes obvious what you have done wrong.

yes the errror says it doesn't allow multple row insert
and sujests to insert by one row at time,,,,,


but i like to know whats the reason for failure of multiple insert ,,, is it due to index or primary key ?
as i executed with different table and it was successful

sucessfu  execution of below query
     CREATE TABLE  ACT
      (ACTNO    SMALLINT       NOT NULL,
       ACTKWD   CHAR(6)        NOT NULL,
       ACTDESC  VARCHAR(20)    NOT NULL,
       PRIMARY KEY (ACTNO)             )
  IN mydatabase
 insert into act
  select * from DSN8910.act;
