SLQ Studio dropping keys on data import

I appear to be having a problem with sql server management studio with sql2000. If I use the data import to bring over a table from an existing database it appears to be drop identity columns and keys. Anyone see this and know a fix

Not exactly sure what you mean. I am familiar w/ the data import not popogating keys, such as primary keys, foreign keys, indexes....but I think that the identity columns stay as identity columns.  One way to get around this is to script the table out as it is from the source server, execute that script on the destination server, then just import the data into that new table structure.  That should take care of what you need.

enterprise manager with 2000 never had this problem. Is this just another "enhancement from Microsoft"
