I have two servers (serverA and serverB) both containing MS SQL 2005. How do I copy tables from serverA to serverB using a Coldfusion program or a script? What is the best way to go about this ?

The easiest way is to use the Import/Export Wizard from SQL Server Management Studio. Just right-click on the database A from server A and chose Tasks/Export Data... and follow the wizard.

Other way is using T-SQL but you need to create first a Linked Server to server B on server A and then run a query similar to this one:
INSERT INTO ServerB.dbo.TableName
SELECT * FROM ServerATableName

Open in new window

try this.......

Select * into ServerA.DestinationDB.dbo.tableName from ServerB.SourceDB.dbo.SourceTable

For generate script :
1.Right-click on the database name, then select "Tasks" then click on "Generate Scripts". After that, the Script Wizard opens. Click on "Next".
2. Select the Database you want to script.
3.Choose the object types. Click on "Next".
4.Select the tables.
5.Select the Output option for the script.
6.Change/Edit the database name to the name you want to execute this script for.
