Script to create a SQL Server Table

I have a windows form .net application that uses SQL Server 2012 Express.  I have a user of this application who knows nothing of SQL Server and he needs a new table added to the SQL Server Database that my application uses.  Is there a way to create an executable script that I can send to this user that would execute a SQL script to create a new table?  I do have SQL Server management studio so is there anything in this tool that will allow me to create an executable script for this user?  I only want this user to execute the script and let the script to the work of create a new table in an existing database.

are you looking for something like a batch file or a exe which upon execution at your client site will automatically create the table for you in the database??

If the answer to the above question is yes
then follow the below steps

1) write the create table statement for your table or just right click on the existing table in the SSMS and say create script.

2) Save this script in a file, let us say test.SQL

3) Now create a batch file let us say testBatch.bat

4) within this batch file you can use SQLCMD to connect to the user database and execute test.sql
such as below
sqlcmd -S myServer\instanceName -i C:\test.sql

Now send you client both test.sql and testBatch.bat and ask him to double click on testBatch.bat and that will do the rest.

You could write a stored procedure for him and have him import and run it.

The other option would be to make a C# program to connect to the database server and then issue the commands.  You would want to prompt the user for the name or IP address of the server, the username and password of a user account that has administrative rights on the DBMS.  You could then publish the app and send the executable or installer to him.
