You can use this to create a new table and copy all items from the old table:

select *
into newtable
from oldtable

if you already setuup a linked server, use

INSERT INTO TableName
SELECT [LinkedServerName].[DatabaseName].[shemaName].TableName
0

i missed the something

INSERT INTO TableName
SELECT* from  [LinkedServerName].[DatabaseName].[shemaName].TableName


the above one will work when you are in the Destination db..

otherwise


INSERT INTO  [ServerName].[DatabaseName].[shemaName].TableName
SELECT* from  [LinkedServerName].[DatabaseName].[shemaName].TableName

If the 2 database are not on the same server

You have to create a linked server to be able to access the databases on another server.  Here's a link that may be able to help you get started with linked servers:

http://www.databasejournal.com/features/mssql/article.php/3085211

Then you can use the following method as if the 2 database were on the same server

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

If the 2 database are on the same server

SELECT * INTO xyz.dbo.YourTableTemp FROM abc.dbo.YourTable

Just remember that using this query will only transfer the schema and data. It does not transfer the indexes, foreign keys, statistics etc.

If you want to transfer all the objects from one database to another, open Sql Server Management Studio > Right click on your database > All Tasks > Generate SQL Scripts. Then run these scripts against the new database.

Transfer both schema and data

To copy both data and schema, use the Microsoft SQL Server Database Publishing Wizard 1.1. This tool works for both SQL 2000 and SQL 2005 and generates a single SQL script file which can be used to recreate a database (both schema and data).
