tanku very much sir ,i got it.

INSERT INTO dbo.TargetTable(field1, field2, field3)
   SELECT field1, field2, field3
     FROM SourceDatabase.dbo.SourceTable  WHERE (some condition)

this will transfer the details from one to another

If table is not exist in database then use this solution

SELECT * INTO TargetDB.dbo.TableName   
    FROM [SourceDb].[dbo].[TableName]

By using this query you can do.
Here you have to replace TargetDb and SourceDb and TableName according to your database name.

Else table is exists in database then use this one
INSERT INTO [TargetDB].[dbo].[Department]
FROM [SourceDb].[dbo].[Department]

Let me know if you still face any issue.

Hello ,is it possible to insert records in existed table "TargetDB.dbo.TableName " by your solution?

Hi Santosh kumar
for the existed table it will not work.
For that this query will work.

INSERT INTO [TargetDB].[dbo].[Department]
FROM [SourceDb].[dbo].[Department]
Santosh kumar Pithani 12-Sep-18 6:34am    
yes, now your solution is correct so improve your solution with new query!
insert into Db2.dbo.tablename
--(all columns with comma separator except identity column)
--select all columns with comma separator except identity column
from Db1.dbo.tablename
