Is there a way, either when generating SQL scripts or copying a database to also copy the diagram(s)? I am stumped.
thanks

I think the diagrams are stored along with the DTS packages in the msdb catalog
Script out msdb objects and you should get what you need.

Oops,
sorry for this misleading first post,
sounds like diagrams are stored in the dtproperties table

I guess it should be possible to rebuild the dagrams with an insert ... select statement

insert into <NewDB>..dtproperties (objectid, value, lvalue, version, property)
select objectid, value, lvalue, version, property
from <SourceDB>..dtproperties

but I'm not sure how it will handle tables having different objectIDs in both databases

They are in the MSDB database, but they can't simply be scripted out (blobs)....
