Export SQL Server Tables from SQL Server 2005 Express to SQL Server 2000

I have created a database on Microsoft SQL Server Express and I need to export a number of tables (but not all tables) complete with the index information  to a SQL Server 2000 database.

The problem is that the CREATE scripts generated by SQL Server Express are not compatible with SQL2000 so that, when I try to run the scripts on the SQL 2000 server, they fail the syntax check.

What's the easiest way of doing this?

When generating the script on sql 2005 express select the option of 2000 compatible and then run it on sql 2000 server

I can't find the 2000 compatible option on my copy of SQL Server Express.  I am generating the scripts by right clicking on the table to be exported, selecting the Script Table as CREATE TO, selecting the File option and then entering the name of the .sql file.  Where is the 2000 compatible option?

Because you have express edition, its there in the other editions like standard and developer editions.

Try using DTS of sql 2000 to import the objects from sql 2005 express to sql 2000.
