The above query should work. If you have different schema than 'dbo' change it to yours.

-- All fields
INSERT INTO database1.yourschema.table1 SELECT * FROM database2.yourschema.table1

-- Custom fields
INSERT INTO database1.yourschema.table1 (Col1, Col2) SELECT Col1, Col2 FROM database2.yourschema.table1

This is because of the difference in data length of some columns. If you are trying to insert / update values into a columns that have more length that the column allows, this error happens.

Compare the datalength of the two columns and change the length for the column which have lesser than the other.

An explicit value for the identity column in table 'ow1222.dbo.productimagespd' can only be specified when a column list is used and IDENTITY_INSERT is ON.

Your table have primary key field with IDENTITY property.

Modify your Select query by specifying the columns excluding the primary key.

Something like

INSERT INTO database1.[dbo].[productimagespd] (productid, name, place, manu)
   SELECT productid, name, place, manu FROM database2.[dbo].[productimagespd]

This excludes primary key / identity column

Exclude primary key / identity column - check my query I posted above.

Since 'productimagesid' is the primary key with IDENTITY property enabled, this insertion may cause duplicate values - that's causing this error.
