FYI you can also get this by right clicking and selecting copy on the table in enterprise manager - the code will be on the clipboard to paste where ever you want (QA)

Thanks very much!  Also (dumb question), but is there any mechanism for running sql script from right within enterprise manager, or is sql query analyzer the only option?

ps:  i had wondered what the "copy" option did, since there was no paste option!
Hi sah18,

You can run some sql _statements_ in enterprise manager but not scripts or batches, I would stick with QA - enterprise manager is not really the place to be running script.
