how to code transerfering data from one database table to another when on different servers

I am unsure of how to code transferring data from one table in one database to another when on the same network but different server
INSERT INTO [acisql2].[dbo].[OPIS_LOGS]
FROM [JasperTest].[dbo].[OPIS_LOGS]

Open in new window

so how would I change the setup for the FROM ..... to connect to a different database on a different server

You set up a linked (SQL) server with the management studio and assuming you have sufficient permissions on the remote server just use the four part syntax [OTHERSERVER].[OTHERDB].[dbo].[TABLE]

But NOTE! If there are lots of rows in the remote table, that's a really slow way to do it. There are other ways such a bulk copy (BULK INSERT).
