Hello everyone, thanks for you time.  I have a very unique situation here.  The company i work for has a IBM AS400 that is running Accounting systems on it.  We have a Sales and Marketing system that is running a SQL Server 2008 R1.  I have the AS400 as a linked the server and I can select*from from the table on the AS400 with zero problems.  I have set a blank table on the AS400 and I have a view setup on the SQL Server to add data to the table on the AS400.  I have done all of the PTF updates on the AS400 for the database and the hyper system.  I am trying to write a statement that will select the data from the SQL view and place it in the table on the AS400.  Here is what I have so far.  I am a novice at SQL, I am more of a network engineer.  Any help at all would be greatly appreciate.  The following is the statement I have thus far, that is giving me syntax errors.

SELECT*FROM [TSWDATA_ClientCustom].[dbo].[vw_rb_ar_CreateGLTrans]
            ([GLProject]
           ,[CardType]
           ,[TRType]
           ,[GLMajor]
           ,[SourceDesc]
           ,[TransactionDate]
           ,[PostingPeriod]
           ,[DepartmentSub]
           ,[Amount]
           ,[TransDescription])
    VALUES (<GLProject, varchar(20),>
           ,<CardType, varchar,>
           ,<TRType, varchar(2),>
           ,<GLMajor, varchar(4),>
           ,<SourceDesc, varchar(6),>
           ,<TransactionDate, varchar(10),>
           ,<PostingPeriod, varchar(7),>
           ,<DepartmentSub, varchar(7),>
           ,<Amount, decimal(15,2),>
           ,<TransDescription, varchar(20),>)
INSERT INTO [AS400].[S069E014].[TSW].[GLTRN]
           ([TCOPRJ]
           ,[TCARDT]
           ,[TRTTYPE]
           ,[TMAJOR]
           ,[TSOURC]
           ,[TDATE]
           ,[TPPER]
           ,[TCPTSU]
           ,[TAMT]
           ,[TRDESC])
     VALUES
           (<TCOPRJ, varchar(20),>
           ,<TCARDT, varchar,>
           ,<TRTTYPE, varchar(2),>
           ,<TMAJOR, varchar(4),>
           ,<TSOURC, varchar(6),>
           ,<TDATE, varchar(10),>
           ,<TPPER, varchar(7),>
           ,<TCPTSU, varchar(7),>
           ,<TAMT, decimal(15,2),>
           ,<TRDESC, varchar(20),>)

Thanks again for your time
