Please note: 5 year old thread.


And they left out the important parts, to boot!

SELECT colname1, colname2, colname5, colname4, colname3 into NewTableName from OldTableName

**this will create at NewTable with columns in the above sequence.


Correct. But although it will correctly copy the IDENTITY property and NULLability constraints if done on the same instance, it will not create some of the more important parts like the PK, AKs, FKs, Indexes, Triggers, etc, etc.
