Um, you could search for backup components which support SQLServer. Most of these components allow for the selection of tables/records. However, I don't kno wof any off the top of my head

Did you try looking for any components?

If not, try the following places (do a search for backup)

Can I suggest the following

select  top 1000 * into TempBackupTable from Table

Then do your backup on the TempBackUpTable

drop table TempBackupTable

Note : TempBackupTable must not be defined as @TempBackupTable as this will only stay for the length of your session and will not eb available there after.

Kind Regards
