How to Copy query output to the table (with out modifying the script) ?

I have the following table

create table employee (Name varchar(50), avg1 numeric(5),dob datetime,
salary numeric(10,2),location varchar(1),bonus numeric(10,2));

insert into employee values ('AAA',31,'02/19/1980',25000,'A',45000);
insert into employee values ('AA1',44,'08/08/1982',35000,'A',35000);
insert into employee values ('AA3',10,'10/10/1975',25000,'B',50000);
insert into employee values ('AA4',30,'12/10/1999',20000,'B',25000);

How do I insert/copy  the following query result into the table ?

SELECT seq,
   CASE WHEN location IS NULL THEN 'Grand Total' WHEN name IS NULL THEN 'Total' ELSE name END
              name,
          AVG,
          dob,
          salary,
          location,
          bonus
     FROM (SELECT row_number() over(partition by location order by name) seq, t.* FROM employee  t
           UNION ALL
             SELECT NULL,
                          NULL,
                    SUM(AVG) AVG,
                    NULL,
                    SUM(salary) salary,
                    location,
                    SUM(bonus) bonus
               FROM employee 
           GROUP BY ROLLUP(location)) x
 ORDER BY CASE WHEN location IS NULL THEN 1 ELSE 0 END,
          location,
          CASE WHEN x.name IS NULL THEN 1 ELSE 0 END,
          x.name;

I think you are looking for a SELECT INTO:
http://www.w3schools.com/sql/sql_select_into.asp

So right before (above) your FROM statement
put INTO and the table name the data is to go into.

Obviously the columns from the select (above the INTO part) must be appropriate to fit into the columns of the destination table.

I think it would be more like:
SELECT seq,
   CASE WHEN location IS NULL THEN 'Grand Total' WHEN name IS NULL THEN 'Total' ELSE name END
              name,
          AVG,
          dob,
          salary,
          location,
          bonus
     INTO YOUR-DESTINATION-TABLE-NAME
     FROM (SELECT row_number() over(partition by location order by name) seq, t.* FROM employee  t
           UNION ALL
             SELECT NULL,
                          NULL,
                    SUM(AVG) AVG,
                    NULL,
                    SUM(salary) salary,
                    location,
                    SUM(bonus) bonus
               FROM employee 
           GROUP BY ROLLUP(location)) x
 ORDER BY CASE WHEN location IS NULL THEN 1 ELSE 0 END,
          location,
          CASE WHEN x.name IS NULL THEN 1 ELSE 0 END,
          x.name;

Be sure to replace YOUR-DESTINATION-TABLE-NAME with the correct name.
Again, the columns selected must "fit" the destination table for this to work.  It shouldn't be the same table as the source, either.
