sql server - Backup SQL Schema Only?


Translate

I need to create a backup of a SQL Server 2005 Database that's only the structure...no records, just the schema. Is there any way to do this?

EDIT: I'm trying to create a backup file to use with old processes, so a script wouldn't work for my purposes, sorry

    Use a 3 step process:

    1. Generate a script from the working database
    2. Create a new database from that script
    3. Create a backup of the new database

    Why not just use SQL Management Studio to create a complete script of your database and the objects?

    Toad for SQL Server does this nicely, if you're considering a commercial product.

    I make heavy use of this tool:
    SQLBalance for MySQL

    Unfortunately; its windows only... but works like a charm to move databases around, data or no data, merge or compare.
