what is the simplest and quickest way to load a table?

i know how to add occurrences with a counter that has depending on. i know how to do it with a group move. of course, it can be done with a loop. i think there is another trick to loading a table that is supposedly quick and simple. can anyone tell me what that is.

If the table data is fixed, the VALUE clause is the fastest way to load the table since it's done during compile, not run time. Otherwise, loops are most common but maybe not as fast as group moves (but then group moves aren't always possible).
