insert values using Select

I am trying to get a value to insert into a table from a table and get the following error:
Subqueries are not allowed in this context. Only scalar expressions are allowed.
Here is the query.
Insert into [dbo].[tblRpt_Param]
(ReportName,    
Previous_Run_Date,  
Current_Run_Date)

Values ('AXA_Approved_Accts',Null,(Select Max(CrtDate)From [transaction].dbo.narrstatushistory))

Try:

Insert into [dbo].[tblRpt_Param]
          (ReportName,    
           Previous_Run_Date,  
           Current_Run_Date)
select 'AXA_Approved_Accts',
          Null,
         Max(CrtDate)
From [transaction].dbo.narrstatushistory

Note that if there are columns other than crtdate in the narrstatushistory table, you'll need to add a "group by <col1>, <col2>..." for every column other than crtdate to the end of the query.
