All,
I need to create a copy of an existing database on the same server. Due to space limitations I only want to take the schema and then import certain tables. Is there a way to export / import the schema for a database, i.e. no rows required?
Thanks

Generate the script and run it on the new database
You can use IMPORT/EXPORT Wizard to copy the tables

You can use the Import / Export Wizard to create a new database and all the
database objects (tables views, stored procedures) WITHOUT copying data, but
I believe it won't copy roles or users.
