You can't transfer partitions directly from one table to another in the way you're suggesting, but you can accomplish the same thing using INSERT ... SELECT followed by either of:

a. (If you want to remove the data whilst preserving the partition's definition in the original table:) DELETE using the same WHERE clause as the INSERT ... SELECT (and OPTIMIZE TABLE to reclaim the space).


b. (If you want to remove the partition definition from the original table:) ALTER TABLE ... DROP PARTITION.
