I am using the following command to insert records in a table:
insert into grel01.falcon.dbo.job_ext(select * from tsdaft.falcon.dbo.job_ext where id > 140213)

I keep getting the following error:
Msg 156, Level 15, State 1, Line 1
Incorrect syntax near the keyword 'select'.
Msg 170, Level 15, State 1, Line 1
Line 1: Incorrect syntax near ')'.

The query seems perfectly fine

try this instead:

insert into grel01.falcon.dbo.job_ext
select * from tsdaft.falcon.dbo.job_ext where id > 140213

Couple of minor points..
(1)  Your database name is grel01.falcon, correct?
(2)  It's widely considered proper design to INSERT specifying all columns, and not with the all-columns asterisk (*).
