Using three part names to reference data in a separate database

I want to create tables from one database into another database through a stored procedure- eg: I want to create all the tables in Pubs that are created on a particular date into my Northwind database (all the data that were in Pubs table must be duplicated into the Northwind database tables) - how is this done?

You need a query like the following:

CREATE PROC dbo.CopyAuthors
SELECT * INTO Northwind.dbo.authors
FROM authors

EXEC dbo.CopyAuthors
