either use an identity column on table 2
or continue as you are ....

you normally will need to use the order number many times so have to "capture" it once via a select anyway...





alternative is
SELECT 1+ MAX(col_OrderNumber) FROM FirstTable

INSERT INTO SecondTable (col_OrderNumber, col_FirstName, col_LastName)
SELECT 1+ MAX(col_OrderNumber),'firstnamevalue','lastnamevalue'  FROM FirstTable
