I am getting the following error:
Msg 8101, Level 16, State 1, Line 8
An explicit value for the identity column in table 'CorpWear265_Restore_TestAlt.dbo.ProductVariantAttributeValue' can only be specified when a column list is used and IDENTITY_INSERT is ON.
The code I have is listed below:
Thanks in advance for any help given.
SET identity_insert ProductVariantAttributeValue ON
SELECT * 
INTO CorpWear265_Restore_TestAlt..table1_originall 
FROM CorpWear265_Restore_Test.dbo.ProductVariantAttributeValue
DELETE CorpWear265_Restore_TestAlt.dbo.ProductVariantAttributeValue
USE CorpWear265_Restore_TestAlt
/*SET identity_insert ProductVariantAttributeValue OFF*/
INSERT INTO CorpWear265_Restore_TestAlt.dbo.ProductVariantAttributeValue 
SELECT * 
FROM CorpWear265_Restore_TestAlt..table1_originall
DROP TABLE CorpWear265_Restore_TestAlt..table1_originall
USE CorpWear265_Restore_TestAlt
SET identity_insert ProductVariantAttributeValue OFF
GO
SELECT TOP 14000 [Id]
      ,[ProductVariantAttributeId]
      ,[Name]
      ,[PriceAdjustment]
      ,[WeightAdjustment]
      ,[IsPreSelected]
      ,[DisplayOrder]
  FROM [CorpWear265_Restore_TestAlt].[dbo].[ProductVariantAttributeValue]
 
  /*
  where Name Like '%!%'
  */
  Go

Try rearranging so your Set Identity_insert ... line is after your USE line.

Thank you for your suggestion. The code I now have is below:
But it still gives the same error:
Msg 8101, Level 16, State 1, Line 7
An explicit value for the identity column in table 'CorpWear265_Restore_TestAlt.dbo.ProductVariantAttributeValue' can only be specified when a column list is used and IDENTITY_INSERT is ON.
SELECT *

FROM CorpWear265_Restore_Test.dbo.ProductVariantAttributeValue
DELETE CorpWear265_Restore_TestAlt.dbo.ProductVariantAttributeValue
USE CorpWear265_Restore_TestAlt
SET identity_insert ProductVariantAttributeValue ON
INSERT INTO CorpWear265_Restore_TestAlt.dbo.ProductVariantAttributeValue 
SELECT * 
FROM CorpWear265_Restore_TestAlt..table1_originall
DROP TABLE CorpWear265_Restore_TestAlt..table1_originall
USE CorpWear265_Restore_TestAlt
GO

Oh, "... when a column list is used and..."

That's the piece we're missing.

INSERT INTO CorpWear265_Restore_TestAlt.dbo.ProductVariantAttributeValue
(Field1, Field2, ... Fieldn)
SELECT Field1, Field2, ... Fieldn
FROM CorpWear265_Restore_TestAlt..table1_originall
