Go

Before trying this sample, follow the Go setup instructions in the BigQuery quickstart using client libraries. For more information, see the BigQuery Go API reference documentation.

	// srcDatasetID := "sourcedataset"

	ctx := context.Background()
	client, err := bigquery.NewClient(ctx, projectID)

	status, err := job.Wait(ctx)
	if err != nil {
		return err
	}
	if err := status.Err(); err != nil {

Node.js

Before trying this sample, follow the Node.js setup instructions in the BigQuery quickstart using client libraries. For more information, see the BigQuery Node.js API reference documentation.

// Import the Google Cloud client library
const {BigQuery} = require('@google-cloud/bigquery');
const bigquery = new BigQuery();

async function copyTableMultipleSource() {
  // Copy multiple source tables to a given destination.

  /**
   * TODO(developer): Uncomment the following lines before running the sample.
   */
  // const datasetId = "my_dataset";
  // sourceTable = 'my_table';
  // destinationTable = 'testing';

  // Create a client
  const dataset = bigquery.dataset(datasetId);

  const metadata = {
    createDisposition: 'CREATE_NEVER',
    writeDisposition: 'WRITE_TRUNCATE',
  };

  // Create table references
  const table = dataset.table(sourceTable);
  const yourTable = dataset.table(destinationTable);

  // Copy table
  const [apiResponse] = await table.copy(yourTable, metadata);
  console.log(apiResponse.configuration.copy);
}

Python

Before trying this sample, follow the Python setup instructions in the BigQuery quickstart using client libraries. For more information, see the BigQuery Python API reference documentation.


from google.cloud import bigquery

# Construct a BigQuery client object.
client = bigquery.Client()

# TODO(developer): Set dest_table_id to the ID of the destination table.
# dest_table_id = "your-project.your_dataset.your_table_name"

# TODO(developer): Set table_ids to the list of the IDs of the original tables.
# table_ids = ["your-project.your_dataset.your_table_name", ...]

job = client.copy_table(table_ids, dest_table_id)  # Make an API request.
job.result()  # Wait for the job to complete.

print("The tables {} have been appended to {}".format(table_ids, dest_table_id))
