Dynamically script Create Database For Attach For All Databases

By David Benoit,

This script will either script out the CREATE DATABASE FOR ATTACH statement for an individual database by passing in the database name or will script out all for the instance. This can be especially handy when migrating to a new server and the drives that the data files are on are moving across. This will work with SQL Server 2005 and 2008 and will work with databases that have Full Text indexing enabled.


Being that sp_attach_db is deprecated this script should be used over the script that was referenced at the beginning of this posting.


Please note, this is a modified version of a script that can be found at this LINK.
