How to Restore MS SQL database without data

I'm just wondering is it possible to restore old database with new "version" of same database? I just want new fields, views and procedures from new version to old version and same time keeping data in old version.

Help needed, thanks!

I don't think there's any way to pick and choose what it'll restore.  When you restore the file (let's say it's called MIRCCISDATA), change the name by modifying the name in the To database field.  Then, copy the views and procedures from the new version to the old version (I've only got Express to practice on right now so I have to copy the script from the view to the new view in the other dB, but I think there's a way to copy the views and procedures in full-blown SQL--right-click the view and check it out).

Here is a link to an easy tutorial on how to create a script to copy the database structure.

Just follow the instructions to create the structure scipt using the Script Wizard.

Then create a new database and run the script against it to create the tables, views, etc.

Hi,
You can modify the model database to make it(via scripts ) as your template, then every new database u create will be like your template.
