You can use import/export task and DTS package created automatically by Enterprise manager or just try

 select * INTO [newdatabase].dbo.[newTable] from [sourceDatabase].dbo.[sourcetable]

 good luck

Hi prajapatiamit2003,


About copying data from tables which in different SQL servers. You can use OPENDATASOURCE query data from remote Server and insert data to local table:




         'Data Source=Server2;User ID=MyUID;Password=MyPass'



Try this code in Query Analyzer first, If it work perfectly then you can use it in C# like:

    string queryString = "T-SQL above";

    using (SqlConnection connection = new SqlConnection(



        SqlCommand command = new SqlCommand(queryString, connection);




If the T-SQL works fail in Query Analyzer, you should first troubleshoot base on the error message.


Hence, if the table is small, I suggest you another solution with a little lower performance.

There are two steps for this solution:

  1. Get data from remote table use SqlDataReader and fill data in DataTable.
  2. Then insert every rows from DataTable to table in SQL Server by following code: 

        foreach(TableRow row in table.Rows)


            command.CommandText= String.Format("INSERT INTO table VALUES ( {0},{1})", row[0], row[1]);






Becuase data will be loaded into an in-memory DataTable object first and then insert into table one by one, so the performance may be very poor if you want to copy large table.

I hope this helps.
