expert: I am not a db type but I have a working database on one MS SQL 2005 Server and someone created a similar but blank database on another MS SQL 2005 Server. I want to know how to go about copying my existing database tables over to the blank database on the other  MS SQL 2005 Server and perhaps also the data?
