SQL Server 2005 Stored Procedure to insert records where ID is greater than Max ID

Hello,

I'm pretty new at SQL Server.  What I'm trying to do I imagine is pretty simple.  I have 2 identical tables, TableA and TableB.  I want to insert the records from TableA into TableB where the ID is greater than the max ID already in TableB

INSERT INTO [Server1].DB1.dbo.tblOrderItemSize
                      (QCID, JoxID, Parent, Whs, OrderNum, LineNum, [Assembly], GlassSize, SashSize, FrameSize, AssyLoc, QNADesc, DateStamp, GridType, GridLayout)
SELECT     QCID, JoxID, Parent, Whs, OrderNum, LineNum, [Assembly], GlassSize, SashSize, FrameSize, AssyLoc, QNADesc, DateStamp, GridType, 
                      GridLayout
FROM         tblImportSize AS tblImportSize_1
WHERE     (Whs = 140) AND (QCID > MaxID)
                          ((SELECT MAX (QCID)AS MaxID
                            FROM          [Server1].DB1.dbo.tblOrderItemSize)))

like this.
INSERT INTO [Server1].DB1.dbo.tblOrderItemSize 
            (QCID,JoxID,Parent,Whs,OrderNum,LineNum,[Assembly],GlassSize,SashSize,FrameSize,AssyLoc,QNADesc,DateStamp,GridType,GridLayout) 
SELECT QCID,JoxID,Parent,Whs,OrderNum,LineNum,[Assembly],GlassSize,SashSize,FrameSize,AssyLoc,QNADesc,DateStamp,GridType,GridLayout 
  FROM tblImportSize AS tblImportSize_1 
 WHERE ( Whs = 140 ) 
   AND QCID > (SELECT MAX (QCID)AS MaxID 
                 FROM [Server1].DB1.dbo.tblOrderItemSize)

you can add table alias in the sub-query as well.
INSERT INTO [Server1].DB1.dbo.tblOrderItemSize 
            (QCID,JoxID,Parent,Whs,OrderNum,LineNum,[Assembly],GlassSize,SashSize,FrameSize,AssyLoc,QNADesc,DateStamp,GridType,GridLayout) 
SELECT QCID,JoxID,Parent,Whs,OrderNum,LineNum,[Assembly],GlassSize,SashSize,FrameSize,AssyLoc,QNADesc,DateStamp,GridType,GridLayout 
  FROM tblImportSize AS tblImportSize_1 
 WHERE ( Whs = 140 ) 
   AND QCID > (SELECT MAX (t1.QCID) 
                 FROM [Server1].DB1.dbo.tblOrderItemSize t1)

Being on mobile makes it difficult to write long sql....
I would retrieve the max Id into a variable
Select @var =max(id) from table

Anduse row_number function

Insert into tableb select @var + row_number() over (order by somefield) , ... from tablea
