Try like this:
CREATE TABLE #TEMPPRJ
(
      TPPrjID INT PRIMARY KEY IDENTITY(1,1),
      TPProject char(24) NULL
);
 
INSERT INTO #TEMPPRJ(TPProject)
SELECT 'Test'
UNION SELECT 'Another Test';
 
SELECT * FROM #TEMPPRJ;
 
DROP TABLE #TEMPPRJ;

Change this statement:
INSERT INTO #TEMPPRJ(TPProject)
SELECT 'Test'
UNION SELECT 'Another Test';

To something like this:
INSERT INTO #TEMPPRJ(TPProject)
SELECT DISTINCT ProjectColumnName
FROM Customer

If you mean, you want to join on project to get the customer name then do something like this:

SELECT t.*, c.customername
FROM #TEMPPRJ t
INNER JOIN Customer c ON c.TPProject = t.TPProject

OR something to that effect.  If you meant to insert new rows of TPProject values based on customername values in your customer table, see my original suggestion using INSERT INTO.
