Scripting CREATE INDEX Statements Automatically From Your Tables

By Derek Colley,

Just thought I'd share a script I wrote recently to get full CREATE INDEX statements (including filters, filegroup information and all the WITH options) from existing indexes you have.  This is useful when duplicating tables, e.g. when you use SELECT * INTO... you'll find you leave your NC indexes behind.  Or if you're dropping some indexes and want to be able to recreate them in a hurry.


When I Googled for this I couldn't find a single satisfactory solution to this problem, so here's mine.  Tested OK, read all the comments and if you want to test it for yourself, you'll find some test code to create sample objects at the end of the code segment.
