Do you want to inser SP's output in table. The syntax you written above is CTE syntax and i guess can not be executed this way.

You have to create a temp table,

1. create temp table.
2 insert into temp table
   exec ('exec [sp_InventoryETA]')
3 select * from temp table.
You can not use a table-valued function like that.  (I am assuming that's what it is.)

You can create a temp table (see link below)...

Then you can add the dataset in something like this...
EXEC [sp_InventoryETA]
