Hello

There are two solutions to this problem

procedure 1:
1. create a linked server between the two sql servers where the databases are prenset
2. write a stored procedure in any one of the databases, to copy the tables data

procedure 2:
1. Create a filegroup and add re-create all these tables on that file group.
2. now create a backup job only for that file group.
3. while restoring in another database, restore it using the filegroup again.

which procedure you want to choose

for procedure 1, you can simply configure a sql server agent job and schedule it for at a time.
for procedure 2, you can create backup SSIS DTS package and then configure the package in the server agent join and schdule it for at a time.

Snapshot Replication would likely be the easiest way in your case.

If the user closes this question and it is removed from the database, it may end up as non-informational for other users....
Please think on these lines, tommorow some guy may want to see this information and learn from it....

SO, I suggest the question to be kept and the answers accepted properly
