the error is exactly as indicated: the source table has not the same schema as the destination table.
so, instead of using SELECT *, use the list of columns that need to be put into the destination table.

btw, I presume this is MS SQL Server?! [moving the question]

Your syntax should be:

insert into [wf10inani].[dbo].[ivtf] select COLUMN_NAME1, COLUMN_NAME2 from [wf10taa].[dbo].[ivtf] where code = 'FK5067342'

I assumed that COLUMN_NAME1 and COLUMN_NAME2 are the only columns in  [wf10inani].[dbo].[ivtf]. If you have more columns in  [wf10inani].[dbo].[ivtf] then please add it in the SELECT statment.
