as the title suggests, I want to take a backup of all scripts that are there in the Database (not the DATA, only scripts).
Now i know that this can be done through the Generate Scripts wizard.

I want to know, how can I automate this task. e.g. create it as a JOB that runs daily.

Thanks.

In MS SQL Server 2000 you had an option to put Stored Procedure into separate file.
In SQL Server 2005 looks like you don't have this option, but you can script schema only without data itself.

Download bublishing Wizard if haven't installed it yet.
Execute the following
declare @cmd varchar(1000)
set @cmd = 'master.dbo.xp_cmdshell '
+          '''C:\"Program Files"\"Microsoft SQL Server"\90\Tools\Publishing\SqlPubWiz.exe script '
+          ' -d <database name>  -S <server name> -f -q -schemaonly <output directory>\'
+          '<database name>_'
+          convert(varchar(100), getdate(),112)
+          '.sql'''


exec (@cmd)
