Copy values from one DB to another

I have the following script to copy records from one database to another, problem is I get an error because the table and fields already exist on the target database, which is OK, I don't need to create them I only need the data to be copied from source DB to target DB

SELECT
   legal_entity_sk as legal_entity_sk,
   company_sk as Employerid,
   first_name as FirstNm,
   last_name as LastNm,
   middle_name as MiddleNm
INTO BDotSiskindImport.dbo.Users
FROM Siskind.dbo.legal_entity
GO

In that case use an INSERT statement:
insert into BDotSiskindImport.dbo.Users
(Employerid, FirstNm, LastNm, MiddleNm)
select  legal_entity_sk, company_sk, first_name, last_name, middle_name
from  Siskind.dbo.legal_entity
