Here is the set of queries:

delete from proc_cfa.dbo.P_AvailableForSale


SET IDENTITY_INSERT proc_cfa.dbo.P_AvailableForSale ON

Select * into proc_cfa.dbo.P_AvailableForSale
from proc_cfa.dbo.P_AvailableForSaleBU

SET IDENTITY_INSERT proc_cfa.dbo.P_AvailableForSaleOFF

Note that there is "_" in indetity_insert.
