I have a test table with values inserted into it.  I want to create and insert statement to insert all the values into a production statement based on what is in test. Is there any easy way to create the statement?

In the Production SQL Server instance create a Linked Server for the Test MSSQL instance and run the following in the Production database:
USE ProdDB
GO
INSERT INTO TableName (Col1Name, Col2Name, ..., ColnName)
SELECT (Col1Name, Col2Name, ..., ColnName)
FROM TestLinkedServer.TestDB.dbo.Tablename
