here you go.  just swap in your field names where I have fieldlist mentioned.

create trigger tr_triggername on tablename
for insert
as
begin
insert into otherdbname..tablename(fieldlist)
select fieldlist
from inserted
end

this should do it:

select column_name + ',' from information_schema.columns
where table_name = 'yourtablename'
for xml path('')
