I know this seems after-the-fact now, but if you don't have sufficient administrator privileges (such as on a public shared server like GoDaddy) you can still copy the tables and data you want. Right-click on the database to copy and select Tasks|Generate Scripts. The rest is pretty much self-explanatory. Use the Advanced Options to fine-tune exactly what you want such as schema only or schema with data.
Yes, this is a brute force run-once import method, but once you get the tables and data scripted then you can run the scripts on your local development server and then you have what you need. I'm often stuck working on shared servers where most of the sysadmin functions are denied to me and Generate Scripts has bailed me out more than once. I would also consider it the "poor man's" backup too for such situations where asking for a restore can cost $150/hr. In many cases a weeks-old (or even months-old) backup scripted out and saved to DVD can save a client from losing everything.
