SELECT *
INTO TargetDatabase.TargetTable
FROM SourceDatabase..SourceTable

Then I'd check the TargetTable to make sure identities are set, constraints are still there, etc.

If that fails, a better way may be to script out the SourceTable, change the database/table name, then execute it in TargetDatabase.

Create Table
Then...

INSERT INTO TargetDatabase.TargetTable
SELECT * FROM SourceDatabase..SourceTable

You can also right-click on your source database and choose Tasks -> Export Data.

The wizard then steps you through the selection of the data source and the destination and copies the table for you.
