Move Data - Different Schemas

Last Modified: 2012-05-08
I have 2 SQL 2008 databases.  In database "A" I have a table that I want to extract data from and then import that data into a table within database "B".  The schema is a bit different and has different column names so it's not just a straight copy.  I need to have the data synced up only when it changes.  

Any thoughts on how I would do this?  I know I can use SSIS to move data but I'm wondering how to move the data and set it to run when the data changes.

Should I just create a job?  look at replication?
