I am working on an Intranet for my company using ASP.net and Sql Server Express. I have Sql Server 2005 Standard on the test server.
I have the data model I want and will only add tables from here with out changing any existing tables since there are dozens of stored procedures using them already. While I am adding pages and content to the Web App I add stored procedures and tables or change existing stored procedures and then transfer the changes over to the test server for testing. When I copy the data file from the development computer to the test server I have been copying the whole file over which means any test data added to the test server gets erased.
I Want to be able to update the stored procedures with out copying over the whole data file from the development computer to the test server. Can this be done by simply passing the ldf file? Is it possible to copy individual stored procedures, and tables from one data file to another?
