I have database1 with tblAttendance.   I also have database2 with tblAttendance.  There is a column in the table called Redetermination which determines which records will be migrated to the new database and table.

I would like to transfer all records from dbo.database1.tblAttendance where tblAttendance.Redetermination = 1   to dbo.database2.tblAttendance

How can I do that using SQL statments.  Unless there is also a wizard that does this function...

Try this -

SELECT *
INTO dbo.database2.tblAttendance
FROM dbo.database1.tblAttendance
WHERE dbo.database1.tblAttendance.Redetermination = '1'
0

Actually SELECT ... INTO won't work in this instance.

SELECT INTO creates a new table.  If the destination table already exists, you'll get an error.

You'd want to do something more like this:

INSERT INTO database2.dbo.tblAttendance
SELECT * from database1.dbo.tblAttendance
where database1.dbo.tblAttendance.Redetermination = 1

INSERT INTO database2.dbo.tblAttendance(field1, field2, field3,Redetermination)
     SELECT field1, field2, field3 , 1 as Redetermination
