Hi

What VB.net code would I use to duplicate an SQL table using
SQL Client style of coding similar to the following:

            Dim myConnection As SqlConnection = New SqlConnection(Globals.ThisAddIn.oRIGHT.lblConnectionString.Text)
            Dim myCommand As SqlCommand

            Dim ra As Integer

            Dim sSQL As String = "ALTER TABLE [" & oTable & "] DROP COLUMN [" & oColumn & "]"


            myConnection.Open()

            myCommand = New SqlCommand(sSQL, myConnection)
            ra = myCommand.ExecuteNonQuery()

            DropColumnSQL = True

            myConnection.Close()

The following TSQL will duplicate a table structure without putting any data in it.
Select *
into EmployeeCopy
from Employee
where empID = 0

Open in new window

This does only the basic structure.  It will not duplicate the primary key constraint.
