Copy Data Nightly?

Hi,

I am using SQL 2005

I have a database that contains just one table and I would like to copy the data to 3 other tables that are in different databases.   If a column gets added to the source database table AND the data has changed for example in that column, I want to ensure when the copy process starts, it either drops the table on the destination databases and then re-creates the table and pushes the data across.   How can I do this in a way that will keep my constraints and everything intact.

Say the source database has a table called "Employees".  The columns are:

employee_id
first_name
last_name

I would like to copy the schema and the data and push it to 3 other destination/target db each night at midnight.

Any help appreciated

Thanks,

If you use the import/export wizard to generate a SSIS package, and then run this package with the sql server agent?

Right click in your database and then choose tasks - import/export data... this wizard will guide you to generate a SSIS package... then, IN THE WIZARD save the package in sql server.

In your sql server agent, add a job that execute this package.
