When you are using "Transfer SQL Server Objects Task" can you just exclude a table or two from not being populated.

(we are transferring data from one database in one server to another empty database (same schema design) in another server, with all table options - they are 100s of them, but we want to just exclude one for sure, may be 2 tables.)
