But for example
someothertable is in another server not in the same server as sometable.

Ahh...you failed to mention that in your question.  :)  You're going to need to setup a linked server.

Hello Ennio,

you have to create a linked server first, then you can use the following syntax

insert into sometable(fieldname1, fieldname2, fieldname3)
select fieldname1, fieldname2, fieldname3)
from LinkedServerName.dbName..someothertable
where somecriteria


GOD Bless,
Aneesh R.

Use the Export/Import function in SQL 2000 or 2005 they are both similar.  After creating the export and imports and setting mappings of the different fields you can save them to a Data Transformation Package and run them anytime you need to.

Using the export/import function worked great, and it was simple
