By Clinton Herring,

Compile in master. Set your QA output to text. When run from the db of interest it generates checksum select statements for each user table in the db composed of the PK columns and a checksum for all columns excluding text, ntext, image and sql-variant. There are no parameters. Modify for your own use. Save your output to a sql file. If any tables exist in the db that do not have a PK then those are listed at the end commented out.

Checksum can use (*) unless text, ntext, image and sql-variant datatypes exist otherwise it must use a specified list excluding columns having these datatypes.

The order is by table id not table name.
