I have a remote db within my local studio; configured the linked server...
I can perfrom a select on the remote db by:
select * from [192.xxx.xxx.xxx].testdb.dbo.table

What I would like to do is insert data from a local table into the remote table:

select *
into [192.xxx.xxx.xxx].testdb.dbo.table
from table

Hello Glen_D,

The new table created with the INTO clause does not support 4 part names. it allows only 2 part names, so you would need to create the table and then use INSERT..SELECT to populate it.

you cannot CREATE a table on a remote server.
but you can insert:
insert into [192.xxx.xxx.xxx].testdb.dbo.table
select *
from table
