Guys how do you go about restoring a single table from a backup? As of right now I restore the backup after that I create a temporay database on the production server lets's call it temporay tables. I than export the table from the restored backup into that temporary database. I also know that I can go into the database that I will restore to rename the original table than import the one from the backup. So my question is how do you restore an SQL server table to a new name when doing the import back to the original database basically the original table is named example and I want to restore to example2.

I could certainly be incorrect here but I don't believe that you can restore a given table as a different name directly. I believe the only way to do this is the way you've already doing it... restoring to a separate temporary database and then going from there.
