I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Use SQL Management Studio, or Navicat for SQL server.
You say, "quite a few" - export from the old server and import into the new server.

I am assuming you are planning to move the databases from old server to a new server. Before you start, you need to gather the login credentials, then find out what applications are using those databases and make a plan to change the connection strings, then you move the databases either taking the databases  offline, the copying the database files over and attaching them or thru a backup restore method.
Better you do this on test server first

Aneesh, I wasn't asking about the databases or the login credentials.  I am asking about SQL statements

Create a reliable backup. Make sure you always have dependable copies of your data so you can restore your entire system or individual files.

As SQL Statements are pure ascii text, copy them to text files on disk on the old server and paste them from those files to the new server.

OR Do you mean that you have SQL Peocedures and/or functions compiled on the old server that you sould like to move to the new server?

More info would help us to answer.

I figured it out -- I just selected several statements at one time and did a copy and then pasted onto the other server.

If you want to copy the stored procedure / Views / functions you can right click on database and click on generate script.

Then select relevant objects and your script will be generated which you can save and run on the destination server.
