Tip of the day: Sql Server Scripting Wizard

Ever wanted to copy a table to another database in Sql Server, including the data ?

Well there are several options like for example the Copy Database Wizard, the Import/Export Wizard, Integration Services, … But as from Sql Server 2008 there's a new, not very well documented option: The Generate Scripts Wizard.

Right click on a database in Sql Server Management Studio 2008 and select Generate Scripts:

Then select the database, and in the next screen select what you would like to script, like for example Data (which is not selected by default):

Then select the object(s) you would like to script:

Now, choose how you would like the script to be generated:

And voila:

INSERT [dbo].[CRONUS International Ltd_$Customer]
