How do I create sql scripts sql server 2008?

I do not want to go through table by table, function by function, etc. and create a single script for each.  I am aware of how to do that.  I need to copy pieces of the database to another database.  Not everything either so I cannot do a backup and restore type operation.

Can anyone help me here please?

In Oracle I could go into TOAD and select 1,000 objects and script them to a file/clipboard very easily.  How can I accomplish this in SQL Server 2008?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

B

Product called AQT which costs about 199.00.   Somewhat like toad, but it will connect to any type of database oracle, db2, mysql, sql server just using odbc connections.  Cool part is that you can have it point to one environment, then have it move data to another environment schema and just pick by using the sql statement to filter.  Been using this for about 3 years now and its one of my best tools since I can also do dba work with it vice just quering  http://www.querytool.com/
