I need to migrate 10 yrs data from sql2005 table to sql2008 table where both tables have different columns. What is good approach here/ any tool? Suggestion?

SSIS, tsql, linked servers could help get the job done.

You would probably want to batch the migration. It wouldn't be hard to do it via a sql agent job and run a regular schedule to migrate the top n records.

The hard part would be that you would need to do is map out the source to the destination columns.

You've pretty much outlined what SSIS was built for. But, there's no automatic way to do it. You'll have to build the processes by hand.
