Transfer data from one Table to another T-sql

I need to transfer data from one table to another.
I will be using the SQL Query Analyzer to do this.

This is not a simple transfer of data to the same structured tables.
These tables are completely different, for the most part.

For instance, I will be selecting certain fields of one table.....

SELECT fldOne, fldTwo FROM someTable

I need to take this information, one row at a time and input it into a different type table.

So, something like this to insert into the other table...

INSERT INTO otherTable( fld1, fld2) VALUES( value1, value2 )

I've looked around for a sample to achieve this, but may have overlooked it?

Anyone have a link to show this or a quick sample?

Thanks all,

You can do a select from one table into another.

INSERT INTO otherTable( fld1, fld2
   value1, value2
